Leisure time

The ‘Leisure time’ section includes pictograms related to culture, sports and other recreation. These pictograms can be used in signage, on maps and in brochures.

Tactile images for playground equipment and the symbols intended for them were developed in the design segment of the Helsinki for All project, where a design guideline for tactile images for outdoor use was compiled and pilot versions of tactile maps were developed. These symbols and signs are designed mainly for tactile images and maps for visually impaired persons. The design segment was conducted in cooperation with the City of Helsinki craft workshop, the Finnish Federation of the Visually Impaired, the Finnish Association of People with Physical Disabilities and Sito Oy. For more information on playground signs, please contact the Helsinki for All project.
