The blue and white wheel chair design on a handicapped parking sign or where a facility is wheelchair accessible is well known, but it was not active enough for 22-year-old Chris Yang.

“It’s supposed to represent being active and engaged and if you actually look at the icon the person is going forward and it looks like the wheel is also in motion, this is supposed to show that people with disabilities aren’t passive and are able to navigate their world and be engaged in active life,” he said.

Yang says he hopes to take the new signs to other campuses around the area.
