How The ISA came about

In 1968 The International Commission on Technology and Accessibility held a design contest to come up with a logo that would be easily recognizable as representing access for disabled persons at any given location. Danish graphic design student Susanne Koefoed sent in the now globally recognized symbol of access, without receiving as much as a penny for it. It is beautiful and immediately understood by anyone who comes accross it.

Send Susanne a thought of 'thank you' the next time you see it. What a simple and great design it is.
