Design Business Awards: 24hr Inclusive Design Challenge

The 24hr Inclusive Design Challenge matches top design teams with disabled users to solve accessibility problems. It’s run by the Royal College of Art.

I joined Sprout Design‘s team to create a video about the challenge. We immersed ourselves into Sally’s world, who has really limited sight, identifying a need around viewing large scale maps and magnifying numbers and directions. They designed a ‘wand’ – a gesture based digital camera and projector to capture and display photos.

I filmed and edited the video in the 24hrs, which formed part of their winning entry. Yes, I exported the video in the taxi to the presentation.

Phew this was an intense experience! Getting a glimpse into Sally’s world was humbling. Creating the winning film was satisfying. Interviewing Micheal Wolff was hugely inspiring.
