Human Friendly Design

Main Stage

Track 5

Thurs - Sept. 23

6:00 am EDT

Products for those with disabilities are often designed with a medical approach: to be expensive, ugly and not available at every store. Businesses often don’t consider serving those with visible or hidden disabilities to be a priority. However, businesses and individuals can benefit from an inclusive, familiar-looking, and affordable design.

Viewers of this session will learn how to look at disability differently and how this new vision can empower millions of people. Everyday products can be designed differently to serve all humans equally, create new possibilities and opportunities, and empower underrepresented groups.
