When Life Imitates Work: The Fence Project

Jim Bolek Fence Project

I Have Not Lost My Marbles

By Jim Bolek

When my wife Sheila and I restored our house 27 years ago, we built a block wall around the backyard to keep in our dogs and kids, and keep out other dogs and kids. But we wanted to be good neighbors, so the wall was only four feet tall. (We had small kids and non-jumping dogs.) We could talk across the fence, keep tabs on yards when neighbors weren’t home, see their dirty laundry, and so on. Nude sunbathing was out, but that was rarely an issue.

Hablamos Juntos Universal Health Care Symbols

"We Speak Together"

A groundbreaking research effort produces universal symbols for health-care settings—and underscores the value of evidence-based design.

Patients, family members, and other visitors entering the doors of a hospital or other health-care facility face a daunting environment. Between them and their final destination, they will encounter a series of obstacles: multiple elevator banks, long and often identical-looking corridors, complex routes to distant departments or buildings, and often, ineffective wayfinding signage.

Symbol Usage in Health Care

Special Mention Award
Symbol Usage in Health Care, Hablamos Juntos, an initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, JRC Design

Universally recognized graphic symbols, such as those used to delineate parking spaces and other facilities for individuals who are physically handicapped, can be an effective tool for communicating important information to individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). The aim of this project was to design a set of graphic symbols that would be easily understood and, ultimately could be universally recognized for use in health care environments to aid LEP visitors.
