Vis(ability) 93


How can you redesign the International Symbol of
Access (commonly known
as the ‘wheelchair symbol’)
to make it more inclusive?

Not everybody who is disabled is
in a wheelchair - and not everybody
who needs extra access facilities
is disabled.

My design aims to strip the design of the symbol back, so that it is no longer depicting a person - and simply just displaying a need for more access. Meanwhile, the + symbol is used to indicate the need for something ‘extra’, like extra space or assistance.
