Designing for Differences We Cannot See

Presented by:

Ambika Vohra

Disability takes many forms. Physical impairments are so important to consider, and compassionate discussion around physical disabilities has been a huge benefit in the industry. However, cognitive differences should also be part of the conversation. Designing for these differences is what I would like to explore in my talk. After all, design is also about the differences that we cannot see, and differences that sometimes people will not admit - how do we design for people with depression? With anxiety? What sorts of "dark" patterns have social media introduced that give the illusion of cognitive control?
