The worldwide symbol for disability that has been used since 1969,is facing a mini threat from a group of american designers who want to bring the logo into the modern age.
The group named the Accessible Icon Project feel the logo is too mechanical and unnatural from the normal human form. Their proposed logo is a slicker and modernized version of the logo, with the human resembling more of a paralympic competitor than a stereotypical wheelchair user. The logo certainly looks slicker and more stylized, but is it really nexessary to change a piece of history, that is seen around the world millions of times a day?
Personally, i feel the money spent on the design could be used in a more beneficial way to aid people with disability’s, such as donating to charities or conversing with individuals with disability’s to aid their way of life.
