Following our EasyRead+ workshops, which involves holding a workshop to run through draft Easy Read documents with a group of Camden People First members, we provide suggestions for new Photosymbols to enhance their growing Easy Read library - currently almost 4400 images.
This has resulted in a number of new Photosymbols based on our suggestions.
Last summer we all took part in a photoshoot which has resulted in many CPF members appearing in Photosymbols, like CPF founder Angela in this image for Universal Credit:
And Ian from IC Works with Jide and Mikala from CPF in this image for 'approved':
3-piece or open-neck?
Discussions about new images have led to some interesting debates.
For example: What does a manager look like in the 2010s? The 2 or 3-piece suit in many workplaces has become anachronistic, even in the most traditional sectors...
...meanwhile the open-neck shirt popularised by tech company leaders like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates has become de rigeur in the modern workplace.
Behind the scenes
Getting a little bit meta now, here's a photo of the photoshoot with Angela posing for her Universal Credit image (photo by Ian).
