SignWriting List
August 11, 2013

Hello Eduardo!
I just received a message from Madson explaining that the Logo actually is not meant to show contact…as I suspected, the sign can be signed with or without contact and is clear and correct either way (see Madson's message below). So your confusion was understandable…if you thought that was showing contact - the hands are actually some space apart and are meant to be that way:

Here is Madson's  message to me:

Hi Valerie,

About our logo, yes! Can signed with or without contact. The meaning isn't change.
In new logo is all clear, no problem.

Ok, keep us posted...

First of all, I'm just a beginner.  I find this "simplification" a bit confusing, I wouldn't know how to do the sign on the right if I had read it alone. I mean, is it *that* obvious for everybody that the hands are so close that they touch?
