Inclusive Design is about placing the user at the centre of the design process to obtain the insights that contribute toward exceptional user experiences.
The founder of IncluSign is very much a people-person and has always been fascinated with humans and human interaction with products, systems, and services, and ensures this is a fundamental part of the IncluSign ethos.
With a background in Psychology and Design, he worked in front-line community health care settings interacting directly with individuals possessing cognitive and physical impairment, and this experience provided the stimulus for PhD Study at the University of Cambridge.
He provides services to make technology accessible to a wider proportion of the population, including those with impairment, whilst maximising the commercial potential of products and enhancing the interactional experience for all users.
Passionate about designing engaging interaction, Participatory Design and user involvement is the obvious approach of choice.
Directly involving users helps us gain insights that lead to exceptional user centred design and user experiences. This approach is evidenced based and proven to improve customer engagement and satisfaction. Highly skilled in a wide combination of ethnographic research and inclusive design techniques, why not take a look at the Project Portfolio to see how some of these different approaches have been applied across a broad range of project domains?
