Zero Project Conference: Accessible Design with Rama Gheerawo


In this interview, hosts Steven Scott and Shaun Preece talk to Rama Gheerawo, an expert in inclusive and accessible design and Director at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art.

The discussion revolves around the importance of designing with accessibility and inclusion in mind from the outset, rather than retrofitting solutions later.

Rama explains that the need for design is to be aspirational and appealing, regardless of ability, and shares examples of inclusive design projects in various areas, including taxis, vocal accessibility, buildings, and hospital equipment.
