How can you innovate through accessibility and inclusion?
Products are typically designed for the average user in mind. But there is a great innovation potential in designing for extreme- or disabled users who have lost one or more senses or possess different concentration spans. In addition, there is great product, market and communication value in designing for inclusivity. The methods of universal design can be used to evaluate existing designs, guide the design process or educate both designers and consumers about the characteristics of more usable products and environments.
You will find a link to DTU’s Universal Design Playbook including teaching materials to how to use the methods.
Playbook for universal design - universal design methods for more inclusive solutions.
The purpose of the Principles is to guide the design of environments, products and communications.
