Design for Dignity and Accessibility
I specialize in design that promotes dignity and accessibility for all. I will complete my Masters of Applied Science in human factors and usability testing in May 2018. Because of my rich and varied experience, I am able to offer services that encompass user interface design, exhibit design and service design. Whether you need design from the ground up or another set of eyes to ensure accessibility, contact me and we will discuss your needs.
I have 15+ years of experience working in public services in libraries. In that time, I have been able to see how people of various ages, abilities and education levels interact with technology and service points. In my eight years as a special collections librarian, I created numerous exhibits incorporating rare and fragile objects.
I was born with a visual impairment and have worked with many people with disabilities throughout my career. I understand that people have many unique needs. I am also familiar with the research on accessible design. Accessible design is also more accessible for able bodied people.
If all the years of work in public service have taught me anything, it is that asking questions and actively listening is essential to meet your needs.
