Universal Design, also called inclusive design or Design for All, is the design and composition of an environment so that it can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability. The Universal Design for All process prioritises the needs of users that have the more diverse abilities and characteristics, by involving users, and by using knowledge about accessibility and usability in its organisational processes and procedures.
Learn from Professor Liz Sanders, founder of Make Tools and author of Convivial Toolbox: Generative Research for the Front End of Design, who will present her Generative Design Method Cards – only available to attendees of this event! Going beyond the survey – to methods for designing with people using participatory Co-Design, Liz’s research and publications explore what people Say and Do and on to what they really Think and Feel to inform any design activity towards true innovation.
