04 May Design for Each and All: Mia Casesa
How can design shape how people live well and flourish?
I think design is a method of thinking and creative problem solving. It is a broad and wide reaching discipline that can improve all areas of people’s lives if applied correctly.
Who is/are “each and all” and what is the context?
“Each and All” I think refers to segments of the population who have been historically excluded from opportunities to be seen and heard.
How do you think about “just” and “fair” access in design?
I think it starts with awareness and openness to learn about other people’s lived experiences.
How does design build a better — more inclusive, fairer — world?
Design can be at the heart of how we think about societal and systems structures and for what purpose those structures are built.
The visual design industry is making an effort to make changes and improvements but we have a very long way to go.
