Design for Disability

A series of 5 workshops and creative talks

About

Jessica, a product designer for people with disabilities, organised a series of 5 different workshops and creative talks taking place over the course of a week, inviting product designers of various disciplines that design products for people with disabilities to take part. The aim of this was to create a platform for collaborative design as well as being a space for people who were interested in design to learn more about disabilities and the services/resources available to them.

Impact

With an average of 9 people appearing per session, Jessica successfully created a network of  creative designers and leaders, empowering both individuals and companies creating a platform both comfortable and inviting for them to share and learn from each other’s experiences.
