Access for All : Citizen Interaction Design in partnership with disAbility Connections | Seelio
Skip to Main Content

As part of our class (SI 538: Citizen Interaction Design) our team worked with disAbility Connections located at Jackson. Under their Access for All initiative they had accumulated a lot of information regarding the accessibility of local establishments. Our task was to help them find a way to share this information with the disabled community in an efficient and meaningful way. We strived to ensure that the project would be sustainable and engaging. Our final design solution and product is a responsive WordPress website that has searching and social features.

    I'm the designer and producer in the team. I worked with the team to identify our partners's problems, brainstorming the solutions, framing the insights to generate wireframes and flow charts, and iterate our prototypes to fulfil the expectations from our partners.
    I designed and produced the visual elements in this projects, such as logo, poster, postcards for the final presentation and marketing material. I also engaged with importing and categorising data for the website.

    I worked as the experience designer in the team. I engaged with the partners atdisAbility Connections to understand their problem, talked to the target users and designed the wireframes and prototype to test with the users. I designed and developed the responsive website where users can come and access data about accessibility of establishments in Jackson, Hillsdale and Lenawee county. I also worked on integrating Facebook with the existing website so that it eases the job of the person managing the website and allows users to comment on the accessibility data easily.
