Designing with Empathy
You might have already heard about Inclusive Design. It’s a way of removing the walls that stop people from taking a full part in everyday activities.
At Kin + Carta Connect we embrace this ethos and talk about Designing with Empathy for everyone that could possibly interact with your digital services at some point in their lives.
Why it matters to your business
It’s simple. Your business could be putting up a barrier to a huge potential market. A lack of accessibility could also prove damaging to your brand. You could also be alienating current and future talented colleagues who see you as an employer that doesn’t care about their needs.
A recent Forrester report states that 47% of millennials – soon to be the largest group in the workforce – consider diversity and inclusion a key decision maker in their choices to apply for a role.
At Kin + Carta Connect we believe in access for all, and the way we can achieve this is Designing with Empathy.
Designing with Empathy is the answer
Designing with Empathy is about understanding your customers even if you don't live their lives. Of course, we can’t live everyone's experience, but we can watch, learn and listen to those people that have. This understanding then leads to digital products and services that as many people as possible can use.
At Kin + Carta we’re leaders in Designing with Empathy
Access for all matters deeply to us and is at the forefront of our minds when we start any project.
