Design for Disability
A series of 5 workshops and creative talks
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.
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.
Jessica continues to meet and collaborate with all the creatives who turned attended the workshops, sharing and building upon each others ideas in order to improve the daily lives of those with disabilities.
