Licensing and Design Services


Accessible Design Services
Our creative team works in partnership with organisations both large and small to produce symbolised documents which cater for their individual requirements. We consult with the customer throughout the design process, creating new symbols where necessary, to ensure that the end result is fit for purpose and appropriate for different cultures and languages.


We offer licensing to companies such as architects and building contractors to help design their signage for public buildings and open spaces. We also can produce low-cost signage tiles.


Symbol licensing

Widgit has developed a very large and widely recognised symbol set which is used all over the world. This is value that can easily be added to your product in whatever format you require.

We licence our symbols into commecial products, publications, websites and across Local Authorities.

Copyright and publishing guidance

Widgit supports individuals and organisations in the use of Widgit Symbols, but their usage is protected under copyright. Where the user already has a license for the symbols, and the files can only be accessed through licensed copies of software, there is no additional charge for the use of symbols (E.g. a file for InPrint, SymWriter).

Where the symbols are provided in a different form, either in print, electronically, including on a website, additional copyright documentation and/or licensing fees may apply. 

For advice, and permission on the use of symbols, please email copyright@widgit.com
