A New Sign Language

A new technique to teach sign language, updated for the digital age

Most current (free) online sources for sign language learning consist of either videos, photographs, or scattered sets of illustrations; and the illustrations I found that were available for public use were typically low quality and not particularly clear. By creating a graphic, geometric system to my approach to the form of the human hand, I'm able to express the same ideas with much more clarity and with an easily repeatable aesthetic. The neon sign gif format allows me to communicate the motion of signs in a way that bridges the gap between illustration, photo, and video.
