Inclusive Design by Laura Wigzell of The Pretty Good Project - Wednesday 15 November at 1 pm in JLT

Published: 10/08/2017

On Wednesday 15 November from 1 - 2 pm in the Jennison Lecture Theatre in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, Laura Wigzell of The Pretty Good Project will be speaking about the importance of Inclusive Design, about the products and spaces that we use every day, and about the best way to get others engaged with design.

The Pretty Good Project is all about thoughtful, inclusive design. We all have different and changing abilities. The Pretty Good Project champions those who are designing creatively to embrace this and who involve users in the design process from start to finish (otherwise known as inclusive design).

The Pretty Good Project showcases products, ideas and spaces that look great and make life easier. They do this to help people as they get older but also just because they think ease and elegance in everyday things makes life a little bit nicer for everyone.

The Pretty Good Project scours the high street, the internet, design studios and universities to find hidden gems and talent. They bring them all together in one place for us to buy or to inspire. They also take them on the road and put them through their paces at product testing cafes.

The aim of The Pretty Good Project is to get people talking about how our everyday surroundings help or hinder us and show how inclusive design can help everybody at every stage of life.

The event is open to all students and staff at Kent who want to know more about inclusive design.  Booking strictly via Eventbrite, here.

This event is part of a series of EDI lectures/events that regularly take place in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts.
