While organisations often look for innovation, not many find it. True innovation through Inclusive Design happens by looking at where design failures exist in current practices.
Organisations like Microsoft, Adobe and Apple have seen the benefit of Inclusive Design as a way to find existing or future challenges and create unique solutions. The beauty is that by designing for the edge, all users can benefit. For example, the first use cases for virtual assistants like Siri or Alexa came from work in voice over, and gesture controls like those used in Smart TVs came from work with carpal tunnel. With these innovative products, a huge range of users benefit from the convenience of them, while edge users in particular benefit by having their unique needs met.
Whether it is a product of service, we work with you to use human diversity as a resource for innovation and better designs.
Inclusive design is the ‘next big thing’ in product development and marketing and leaders looking to create a competitive edge via discovery of innovative experiences should be looking to ID to fuel their innovation efforts" - Insurgency
