Description

How do professional designers research their potential market to ensure they come up with designs that meet the needs of users and are inclusive, irrespective of age or ability? This program uses three examples drawn from: textiles (a smart cushion for care homes), resistant materials (children's bikes) and graphics/packaging (mobile phone box/manual). It looks at how designers consider the values and needs of users, how they determine the intended market or user for their product and how they make use of ergonomics and anthropometrics. It also discusses how demographic change is a major challenge to the design profession, increasingly the effects of a rapidly ageing population and a growing number of people with disabilities.
