Descriptions of inclusive design methods and information should also avoid any unintentional indications that these features are being replaced. 2 Implications for Design Methods Design methods are used very flexibly indicating that a method set or “toolkit” should not provide a neat set of defined formal methods but rather methods that can be overlapped, combined and used in flexible ways. It may be better if such a toolkit is small as designers seem to prefer a small set of familiar methods. If a toolkit is large, then it may be worth-while providing ways of selecting smaller sets, personalised to individual designers, companies or design categories.

This is an annual competition, organised by the DBA in association with the Royal College of Art, challenging teams to work with disabled users over a period of about six months, to create examples of inclusive design. Three of this year’s teams lie in product design and three in communication design. Audio and visual data is being collected through observing these teams’ design process in formal meetings and interactions with users. We particularly focus on teams’ interactions with disabled users, the information used and how this affects the design process.

The standards documentation embodies a specification for good inclusive product design. Suppliers who outsource their detailed design work to freelance designers or design consultancies utilise the standards as part of their formal product specification to these organisations. As a fixed metric the standards can then be employed throughout the design process to aid decision-making and as a measure of success in final testing and evaluation. For designers tasked with implementing the standards the imperative was to produce documentation which allowed practical implementation of inclusive design theory in a commercial setting, whilst avoiding information overload.
