Design Meets Disability

Design_meets_disability

When practised in its widest form Human Centred Design is a paradigm which transcends simplicity, usability and interaction, becoming a way of achieving experience, aesthetics and lifestyle. Few texts provide a more powerful demonstration of what can be achieved than Graham Pullin’s book “Design Meets Disability”.

Why shouldn’t design sensibilities be applied to hearing aids, prosthetic limbs and communication aids? And why can’t approaches such as “experience prototyping” or “critical design” complement clinical trials? Pullin provides convincing answers to these questions and more. Through creative and convincing examples, areas are revealed where Human Centred Designers can achieve products and systems which are not only simple to use, but also aesthetic, stylish and fun.
