  • It is important for the graphic designer to have knowledge of the local and language of the country.
  • Factor in time for an in-depth study of the chosen symbol set by the graphic designer in order to learn about the thickness of outlines, palette of colours involved relative to the schema, style and simplicity of imagery with an eye to keeping symbols clutter free and other artistic elements as well as linguistic implications. (See Step 3)
  • Newly developed symbols can be initially shared with the team, but once some symbols appear to be developed in a similar way to the original symbol set the AAC Forum should be involved in a voting process for acceptance.
