This is a new animated short from Design Council exploring the meaning of inclusive design, and how it allows businesses to create great products including the iPad, the Ford Focus and London’s new zero-emission black cab. It features conversations with leading designers creating the next generation of products, graphics and vehicles designed to work better for everyone.

The animation was produced by Design Council with creative production studio El Carousel who created the world of the film using a combination of 3D modelling and lighting effects, 2D animation & rotoscoping, live-action filming and traditional hand-drawn cel animation.

The Design Council has recently launched a new free-to-use ‘Inclusive Design Hub‘ for built environment and design professionals, collating the latest legislation, guidance and best practice. The hub is will ensure a repository of information which is both valued and owned by the industry, meaning you can submit resources that you think should be included. The outcome being a community of professionals and clients that are better placed to make informed decisions to help deliver more inclusive environments.
