Inclusive design 101
Weekly curated resources for designers — thinkers and makers.
“Inclusivity is at the heart of user-centric design approach, which considers not just the average user, but all users. That said, inclusivity isn’t an on/off switch you can magically flip in an instance. To design for all users, you need to consider their physical abilities, experiences, expectations, values, beliefs, and much more.”

Trends are dead →
“The tendency to register and categorize things, whether it be one’s identity, body type, or aesthetic preferences, is a natural part of online life. People have a penchant for naming elusive digital phenomena, but TikTok has only accelerated the use of cutesy aesthetic nomenclature.”
