Accessibility and inclusion aren’t only about physical access to buildings and facilities. Inclusive design in digital spaces is crucial too. Many websites create barriers so disabled people cannot use them.
We created a series of quotable posters for a community art competition by Wiilma. We want the posters to start conversations about accessibility in the digital world.
There are lots of ways that we can design digital spaces to remove barriers that cause exclusion. And by creating with inclusion in mind, design becomes more valuable. Our contribution can be much greater, and celebrating differences can bring us together.
Just as great power needs responsibility, great inclusion comes with great design. Design can be that much greater when it’s inclusive.
The power of inclusive design
A vegetable peeler that’s designed for someone with arthritis will be beneficial to all. The same goes for digital design. If we design for disabled people, our designs will be easier for everyone to use. And our design work will be that much greater for it.
We think Peter Parker would agree. Do you?
The internet should be accessible to all. At we’re all human we help creators, businesses and organisations use inclusive design. Join us to get tips and resources to make your digital presence accessible. Find out more on our Patreon page.
