The Origins of Universal Design

Patricia Moore ’74 (industrial design) has long made an impact on the world through her work as an internationally renowned designer, gerontologist and author.

Her illustrious career of difference-making achievements was recognized in June by receiving a distinguished Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in the Design Mind category.

The National Design Awards — conceived by Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and in its 20th year of existence — annually honors lasting success in American design. They recognize designers who exhibit excellence, innovation and enhancement of the quality of life. Moore was among the 11 category winners selected by a diverse jury group of designers and educators from around the country.

Making Design more inclusive

The Singaporean government is committed to creating a more inclusive society, yet there’s a lack of initiatives which will make this a reality for all.

My interactions with designers and the general population point me to three barriers. One, there is a lack of awareness about the need for and importance of inclusion. Two, those who are aware of its importance do not know where to begin or how to move forward. Three, naysayers are dismissive of the idea and say that it’s impossible to cater for everyone’s needs and wants.

Here, I attempt to inch us forward from these barriers, I offer three tips to help you start taking the practice of inclusive design seriously. It isn’t as difficult as many suggest, but it takes a clear understanding of what inclusive design is to see why.

Presenting the Product Design Process

Product design is not a field in which one can provide a definitive solution that’ll guarantee the success of every project. As different trends come and go, new techniques and frameworks appear as an effort to perfect processes and provide the best results. What once consisted of simply providing a solution to a single problem evolved into a myriad of solutions, channels and platforms that can achieve similar goals.

152 Remote Design Jobs from The Designers League TDL

cover photo, Nenhuma descrição de foto disponível.

This post is from “The Designers League” by Arsen Ibragimov and copy as it is there:

“During the period from December 2 to 8, I collected 152 vacancies from popular job boards like Glassdoor, Flex Jobs, We Work Remotely, and others, as well as from Facebook, Twitter and Reddit.
It takes about 4 hours a day to visit 78 sources that I prepared in advance.

👉Visit The Designers League Group at Facebook >> request access in the comments

How it works:

Click the link that I sent to you, request access, I accept it in 3 minutes and send an email notification to you that you gain access to the table and lately you will receive notifications with updates and new job positions.

You will be able to exit the table and unsubscribe at any time.

Why do you need this?

Let’s be honest, standard job boards – sucks! Look at the main differences between this list and those job boards that you could see:
  • No need to view all the job boards, I already did it for you;
  • No need to register on all job boards, just request access to the list by pressing one button;
  • On average, five job openings for designers per week are published on each job board. I collect them manually and publish hundreds of vacancies during the same time in one place;
  • Job boards refer to each other. I collect direct links to the CV submission page.

Why do I need this?

Access to the list is completely free. Every day I receive thanks for this list of work, so I continue to do so. Let’s see where this leads us.
Good luck in your search for a remote job!”
