As advocates, we believe in the righteous pursuit of equitable and accessible design. Designing for the needs of the most marginalized users, we create better experiences for everyone.
As we address technical feasibility and commercial viability, our design decisions and interventions must remain rooted in the expressed needs, desires and ambitions of users. Additionally, as designers, we must remember we are not saviors and we are not infallible.
We misinterpret, we make mistakes, we miss the mark. So to gut-check ourselves and our work, we continuously test and validate with users, interrogate our own biases, and seek critical feedback from peers.
