Accessible Icon, 2009–11
The International Symbol of Access logo, first designed in 1969 by Susanne Koefoed, featured a person sitting upright in a wheelchair. This recent iteration that depicts a person in forward motion, propelling through space, offers a more accurate representation of people in wheelchairs as dynamic rather than static bodies. The new logo is open source and available in a multitude of sizes and formats.
