This accessible logo poster is aimed to make universal design logos, but this content does not consider visually impaired people.

I think that this is a great resource for providing general things to think about when creating an accessible logo. In response to the comment about me, I believe it does consider visually impaired people as it talks about lighting, color, font size, and legibility. One thing that may need to be added is thinking about creating an EqTD for your logo.

It provides general information, but not detailed information such as font size, or specific colors that may be easier to see. It would be beneficial to go into more detail, and possibly give more ideas or examples of an accessible logo.

The handout provided for creating an accessible logo is helpful, but there are a few flaws associated with it as well. I enjoy that the questions are asked in a simplified language, but no examples are provided. It is helpful to ask if the font is accessible, as an example, but how would the user know it is accessible without stating the accessible fonts. Similarly, providing examples on "good" and "bad" logos may be helpful to users as well. The idea of this handout is great, but a few more details are needed.

As I reviewed the handout, I found it helpful to some extent. I viewed the handout as general information and questions to ask when accessing a logo. However, I would advise adding examples of each question and comparing a good logo to a bad logo. I think adding more visuals would help draw the attention of readers but also give more variety of information rather than containing just questions to ask.
