Inclusive design as an opportunity: Accessibility for all
Design for All, Universal Design, Inclusive Design – call it whatever you like. As long as the core of the whole is right: All terms stand for a fundamentally different idea of design. A design that addresses humans as humans and brings inclusion to life.
Inclusive design puts the user at the heart of the design process. Inclusive design recognises and addresses the diversity of people with and without disabilities, their different needs and circumstances. For the designer, this is a great challenge. For the resulting products, spaces and services, it is preparation for tomorrow’s society.
