Ignoring the how old the onlooker might be, how high up, low down, indoors, artificial light or not, dark train stations, weather, is it a print sign or a screen, reflective road sign etc etc. There are a few tools that will help you calculate this, and there are some best practices. If you really want to get into this, your keyword will be signage. ...

There are too many variables for one answer. The first thing to evaluate is the typeface. If you are using a face designed for signage, the general references Ilan provided are probably roughly accurate. On the other hand, if you're working on a branded piece where the typography is part of a larger brand standard, you'll have to do your own research. The ...

I think what you are after, are some way of indicating "more, unspecific information". As @Cakey points out, not everything in the world needs an icon, so maybe some indication of editing might work fine. Luggage tags are usually used for tags as in identifying synonyms on additional information, mainly as a help for search and batch. Such as swiss ...

Apparently, Wikimedia Commons considers it freely usable for all purposes, i.e. effectively in the public domain. Specifically, they base this on the wording on the Japanese Foundation for Promoting Personal Mobility and Ecological Transportation website (the "green man running through the door" sign was originally designed in Japan, by one Yukio Ota, ...

I suggest a bunch of indicators working in tandem: 'Greyed Out' - give the unavailable buttons some transparency, (or the appearance of transparency with lighter colours). This will make sure it is noticeably different from the other buttons, at the very least sparking curiosity as to why it's different. 'Strike-THROUGH!!!!' - "Like seriously guys look, I ...

Please look at these resources Distance Legibility Chart additional explanation crazy resource also, you probably want to learn what the visual acuity is... If you want to calculate the proper 20/20 letter size based on distance you can use this formula: tan(5 minutes) = distance in feet/20 but it is not the BEST letter size, only the size that a ...

A more elegant solution would be to grey out the button, set it's state to disabled and use a disabled cursor to clearly show the state. I've thrown together a quick codepen to demonstrate this.

I came across these 'reminders' of some of the things we can do to improve accessibility in graphic design, specially print. Grid Clear divisions ensure a consistent strcuture vital for readers with visual disabilities, who appreciate having signposts to help identify content and quickly process meaning. Hierarchy Hierarchy should be present in all ...

The fact that something isn't there at all is a great indication that it is not present! If you'd like to still display the things that were 'chosen but missing' in each result element I suggest not doing it as the same elements in the same section with the only difference being styling. Rather have it be clear to the user that this section shows what ...

In a situation like this, there's no harm at all in asking for clarification. As you and Scott already noted, "Scaling" can apply to several different design situations -- scaling vector artwork, building large-format artwork in a smaller-scale/higher-resolution (common in grande format and billboard work), resizing images and working to scale as in maps and ...

Scaling can often refer to increasing the scope of a project. Project starts with a small piece. Later it's decided there are some collateral items which are needed and the design needs to be consistent with the original project. This would be scaling the project. It's a bit difficult to answer specifically without knowing the exact question.

The issue is not one of copyright so much as legal requirement. International and national standard pictograms are not owned; they are mandated (or advised, depending on the jurisdiction and the application). In the US, for example, there are OSHA requirements for the workplace. The EU has its own signage regulations which are based on the ISO 7010 standard. ...

I think the logic is flawed. I choose some amenities and as a result I expect to see ONLY hotels that combine these amenities. You should inform the user that there is NO hotels that have all the amenities and maybe let them see the results with missing amenities by clicking another button. The red crossed button works well in my opinion. If there are users ...

Why don't you try a small "graph" style icon to represent attributes: I feel that this icon can't be confused with something such as "tools" or "options"

An icon representing generic control elements should work, for example showing a two-part radio button. Or, similar, a simplified equalizer control: If a symbol of "control elements" causes confusion with a tools icon, representing just a list of items could solve that: Images from awoken-icon-theme

Took Alan's advice since it seems there isn't a specific answer. They want me to rank my ability to use an architectural/engineering scale. We can probably delete this question since the answer didn't end up being some universal I was unaware of and will not be very helpful to anyone else.
