This icon is for use by the parents of a deaf child who will use it as their identifier for web presences. They want to inform other parents of deaf children about the lessons they learned. They plan to remain anonymous to protect the privacy of their child.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Primary target audience is the parents of children who are deaf with a secondary audience of deaf children themselves.
Seeking an icon that depicts a parent and child with a vivid identifier of deafness, such as the American Sign Language "I love you" sign. There is room for creativity. Really seeking something that serves as an identifier of deafness with the parent/child relationship without conveying in any way that deafness is a disability or handicap. It should be an icon that is clear as a profile picture on Twitter or Facebook but also looks good in a larger size if placed on a website header.
