In the design world, “Nothing about us without us” is a phrase commonly used to communicate the idea that without involving users, you are not designing for users. This theme is especially prevalent when talking about accessible and inclusive design. Simply following the W3C accessible guidelines does not make design accessible. Design is very much human-centric — it requires problem-solving by involving the human perspective in all steps of the process. It’s challenging, it’s ambiguous, and it’s involved — but this is what makes it exciting. In this talk, we will explore and answer questions like “how do I start designing inclusively?”, “how do I get rid of design biases?” And “how do I approach accessible design in a multitude of mediums?”.
