1992 Angel Award honoree

The primary focus of my work is graphic information design which fosters physical and cognitive accessibility within our environments, both built and social.

These foci are driven by my belief that design and science can catalyze as paradigm change agents to creatively address human needs. This alliance of foci has resulted in my development and publication of national standards for ADA compliance, symbol design, symbol comprehension testing protocol as well as implementation guidelines for individual corporate accessibility manuals and senior faculties.

My current research projects explore ballot design, adoption promotion, medical information packaging design and the documentation of social discourse.
