Designing for all in the moment of need

Digital products not only shape our modern world and services, more and more people rely on them, no matter their digital knowledge or computer skills. They’re necessary for this world to communicate and keep on going, especially when physical contact needs to be restricted.

Therefore inclusive and accessible design matter more than ever. In my presentation I’m talking how to make sure it’s covered in the project, from the initial research phase, throughout the rest of the process, design iterations and cooperation with business and development teams. I’m showing how to create digital products for those in the most vulnerable situations, based on some of the recent Macmillan Cancer Support projects.
