The Accessible Icon Project provides supplies and services to transform the original International Symbol of Access into an active, engaged image. The Icon moves forward with Triangle in creating infinite possibilities for all people with ability!
Originally conceived for use in a guerilla art project, founders Sara Hendren and Brian Glenney overlaid their new, transparent International Symbol of Access (ISA) over the old to raise awareness about cultural perceptions of disability in the US. It was in 2012 that the project really took off, adding Tim Ferguson Sauder as co-designer to adapt the icon for use as a stencil and to meet ISO design standards, and a collaboration with Triangle, a non-profit devoted to empowering people with disabilities and their families enjoy rich, fulfilling lives. Through shared values Triangle and the Icon have been able to greatly influence people all over the world to use the symbol to create more inclusive institutions, economics and workplaces everywhere.
