Blog #8 CIU 111 Inclusive Design

Universal design (close relation to inclusive design) refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, people without disabilities, and people with disabilities as mentioned on Wikipedia.

Now that is just a vague meaning to a very broad topic as inclusive design for what i think is a way to help you get your product or your message across a wider audience which needs to be authentic and understandable.

For the physical aspects of this we have the

Accessibility

Vision

Hearing

Mobility

But I’d like to mention the other key factors that make an inclusive design more accessible and more acceptable to a wider audience. First of all is to get your facts right if you are going to add race make sure you don’t stereotype it get to know the culture before implementing it in your product. If you absolutely have to use symbols be it religious or cultural make sure you dont offend someone by stating the wrong fact or making it seem like its primitive or backward cause even for you it might not carry sentimental value but for the people who follow a certain belief might get offended and hurt.

 

Secondly its about having a more diverse set of people to work with you this will not only help you know about their culture but will broaden the ways of problem-solving and also with new ideologies which can help get your audience to relate more to a more global approach.
