Our logo was designed by a native artist and captures the spirit of who we are and what we do. The image represents the harmony between man and woman. The silhouette of the eagle represents the spirit of the woman in the image of the bear which symbolizes man. The feather represents the passing of knowledge by the teacher to the student. If you look carefully, there is the head of a loon at the base of the dark part of the feather. The loon was the only animal who would dive to the bottom of the lake to retrieve medicine that would restore the sight of the chief of the artist's tribe. The loon holds an honoured place in native history. This logo has so many dimensions that it allows those who view it to explore their creativity...which is also what we like to do. We are not "one thing" but many - in business and in person.

As of August 2018, I have resigned from any work on the ISO 32000 (PDF) and ISO 14289 (PDF/UA) committees. I will continue to provide training and books on accessible PDF documents, however, I realized that I am not able to positively influence the standards.
