Project: Pictorial symbol design for sign language
Since 15th century when people started learning how to communicate by hand in the way of non-verbal communication, many cultures and languages have their own sign languages and not only the deaf who communicate with it but also we can see sign language used by people in several professions.
The objective of this project is to collect and understand the information about sign language, hand signals, and the human movement. The design is based on ‘pictorial symbol’ and ‘Isotype’ design for supporting the human form with the whole hand
