Service Animal—Pet Relief Airport Sign

Service Animal—Pet Relief Airport Sign

Read Time: 3.5 minutes

Humans aren’t the only ones looking for a relief area.

Beginning in 2009, the Department of Transportation required all airlines to make sure there are animal relief areas at airports, and escorts to those relief areas, for any passenger traveling with a service animal. As a result, airports everywhere have created and expanded animal relief areas that are open to all pets as well as service animals. Most animal and pet relief areas were located outside the airport terminals.

International Symbol of Access: the Challenge of Updating an Icon

International Symbol of Access: the Challenge of Updating an Icon

I’m a firm believer in the development of new and more powerful ways to visually communicate important messages non-verbally. But caution is appropriate when attempting to replace a well-established and vitally important societal icon with something that has not been fully usability tested, approved by relevant public regulators, or that has survived the rigors of a comprehensive design process.
