Color Coding For The Color Blind

coloraddcrayon.jpgWe can't imagine a world without color. From health care to transportation, we rely on it to cue us daily. But for about ten percent of the world, color is relative.

Miguel Neiva has created a color coding system to improve daily life for the predominantly male population who experience color blindness (also know as Daltonism). The Color Add Color Identification System offers monochromatic icons to represent a range of colors. Using red, yellow and blue as the foundation, a code is developed in order to create visual icons. These icons can then be included on all color-based systems (from clothing tags to transportation maps) in order to increase accessibility and understanding.
