The role of design is changing. Design is not just about aesthetic, functional or emotional needs. It can also play a key role in promoting sustainability and creating social inclusion. Companies that can use design to meet these challenges can increase profitability and leave the competition behind.
Most products and services are generally designed for the average user - a typically healthy, right-handed, white, young male. In fact the ‘average’ user represents a minority and is not representative of the wider population. People will be excluded from this group in one or more ways.
Inclusive Design can add value to your existing design or development process. Throughout the process there are a number of Inclusive Design activities and methods that can be added to create a more people-centred approach. You can adapt them to suit your purposes for specific projects.
This book gives the readers an introduction as to how Inclusive Design can be used as a strategy for better business.Buy now
