Kat Holmes shares her thoughts on inclusive design with Co.Design, and how there are many intersections between design and how it can benefit many people. She says, “Inclusive design is a process, not a result.” I’ve seen similar thoughts referenced a few times in the past month or so, so it’s worth committing to memory.
