Why High Contrast?

High contrast designs are essential for enhancing visual learning and communication, especially in dynamic environments like school playgrounds. Our High Contrast School Playground Communication Board is designed with this principle in mind, offering several key advantages:

  1. Increased Visibility and Attention: High contrast colors stand out more distinctly against varied backgrounds, ensuring that the communication symbols are easily noticeable and engaging for all children, including those with visual impairments.
  2. Enhanced Readability: The stark contrast between the background and the text/icons makes it easier for young learners to discern and understand the symbols, fostering better comprehension and quicker learning.
  3. Supports Visual Learning: High contrast visuals can help stimulate visual development in younger children and support the cognitive development of visual processing skills.
  4. Inclusivity: By catering to the needs of students with visual challenges, high contrast boards ensure that every child, regardless of their visual capabilities, can participate in and benefit from the communication opportunities these boards provide.


Combining Full Color and High Contrast Designs

At Smarty Symbols, we understand that different environments and situations might require different visual approaches. That’s why we offer the innovative option to combine both full color and high contrast designs into a single communication board. Here’s how this works:

  • Dual-Sided Design: One side of the board features vibrant, full-color imagery suitable for engaging all children and brightening up any playground space. The reverse side uses a high contrast color scheme optimized for visibility and accessibility.
  • Versatile Usage: This dual-sided approach allows educators and students to access  the two designs based on their specific needs.


This dual-sided design not only maximizes the board’s usability but also ensures that every student can access communication tools in a way that best supports their learning and interaction. By integrating both full color and high contrast sides, Smarty Symbols continues to lead in creating inclusive educational tools that adapt to meet the diverse needs of students across different learning environments.
