It occurred to us that some people will never have (clearly) seen the Aniridia Network UK logo designed in 2011.
So here’s a description and explanation of the logo:
- The overall design is a 2 dimensional, stylised, aniridic eye, including a pupil, brow/lid and lashes.
- A black circle sits below and intersected by a curved black arch, thick on the left and tapering to a point on the right. A small white circle sits in the upper right quadrant of the black circle, depicting a glint of light.
- On top of this brow stand 6 gingerbread men style figures forming the eyelashes. They have their arms outstretched to reach each other.
The first third and fifth figures are all black representing people with aniridia.
The second figure is brown, the fourth is blue and the sixth is green. By being the common iris colours, they represent people without aniridia.
- The words “Aniridia Network UK” appear alongside the emblem in bold sans-serif font.
Let us know what you think of this description and how it could be better.
It would be nice to put this description on our website. However for an element that appears on every page it would not be appropriate to put this much details into the alternative text attribute that is read out by default by screen readers. Normally there are other options to make long descriptions available upon request, but we currently don’t have the ability to implement those either.
