Logo designed

Published March 2015

The final logo of the project consists of five different modules, which together form a kind of triangle. Each module has a different color to indicate that many different items compose a new construct. These items further symbolize both (a) the cooperation within a team of visually impaired, blind and sighted persons, which works together on a project and (b) UML modules, which can be developed by using the Cooperate tool.
