Download the access symbols and learn their meanings from the Graphic Artists Guild website.
The Accessible Icon Project provides supplies and services to transform the original International Symbol of Access into an active, engaged image. In close collaboration, the Icon moves forward with Triangle, a Greater Boston non-profit devoted to empowering people with disabilities to enjoy rich, fulfilling lives, in creating infinite possibilities for all people with ability!
We think visual representation matters. People with disabilities have a long history of being spoken for, of being rendered passive in decisions about their lives. The old icon, while a milestone in ADA history, displays that passivity: its arms and legs are drawn like mechanical parts, its posture is unnaturally erect, and its entire look is one that make the chair, not the person, important and visible. As people with disabilities of all kinds—not just chair users—create greater rights and opportunities for social, political, and cultural participation, we think cities should evolve their images of accessibility too.
