Inclusive Design

Inclusive Design at Boulder Start-Up Week 2018

Inclusive design refers to design that considers the full range of human diversity with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age, and other forms of human difference. Inclusive design seeks to make the best possible product for the largest number of people. We are passionate about this topic for a number of reasons, and were thrilled to be able to present a session on it last week at Boulder Startup Week.

While considerations for those with some form of disability is only one facet of inclusive design, we chose to focus our session on it for the sake of time. We shared a bit of history, talked about motivation, and showed several real world examples that demonstrated how designing for accessibility improved the UX/UI for all.

We can’t cover all the details in this post, but we’ll share some big picture concepts and include some recommended readings on this topic. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to see some of the demos we shared or talk more specifically. Read More
