About talk:

Helping with inclusive design? Forget it.

Zlín Congress Center Language: czech

We often associate inclusive design with people with disabilities. Someone other than ourselves. Someone we should be helping. But what if help isn't what's needed? What if the people around us have the same needs as we do: to function independently - to study, to work, to buy a coffee, to go to the bathroom during a design festival, to buy a t-shirt in an e-shop or to elect a new president? Let me introduce you to three stories where I tried to help with design and I stumbled. And I'll offer you a tool to design services inclusively so that everyone benefits without distinction.
