The Critical Axis logo embraces imperfection with its slightly askew matrix. The upper right, and more aspirational quadrant is blocked off and colored outside the lines. The all caps, san serif Critical Axis word mark is disrupted by an exaggerated forward leaning line of the x that descends below the baseline of the text.

Disabled Humor

Disabled Humor is a style of humor drawn from elements of disability culture, oftentimes including elements of ironic self-deprecation intended to challenge nondisabled expectations, or to communicate experiences that are shared by many within the disabled community. Crucially, disabled people retain agency within the joke—they are never the punchline. There is an “insider” perspective on disability that is communicated, which also means that a disabled audience is presumed.
