Design for Accessibility

23 March 2023

To create digital products that’s inclusive and accessible is not a subcategory of design. For years, accessibility within digital product development has been perceived as expensive and not really worth the effort based on the market segment it serves. This is and has always been a dire misconception. Every person in the team plays an integral part and small changes can result in big wins.


Not only should designs be inclusive but also ethically sound. With the EU ban on digital dark patterns that’s coming into practice with more restrictive rules, it’s important to keep an eye on how designers can follow these new practices for Ethics on Digital Products.
