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.


Disability as a metaphor plays out when a non-dynamic, underdeveloped disabled character serves as a plot device to teach a ‘flawed’ character or to guide the audience toward a moral lesson. When disability is used as a metaphor, the goal is not to help audiences better understand the disabled character, but rather to help the audience better understand themselves.
