Designers are creating innovative solutions from touching a rock that illuminates to let your loved ones know you are thinking of them to sitting inside of a protective dining bubble.

Quote from the article: “Design is suffering. It is a collective. We can’t do it digitally, it is not a singular endeavour,” he says. “We are more effective as a group than spread out across the world. You can’t design without experiencing a place, or seeing people use your product in real life.”

5. Claudia Walder is Tackling Shame Around Chronic Illness And Building Her Own Disability Community by Naomi Pike from British Vogue

Link to #5 Article

Claudia is the founder and editor of Ablezine.  Ablezine seeks to change the image of disability and is committed to ensuring that as many disabled people are working behind the scenes as are featured on the page.

Quote from the article: “For Walder, greater understanding and inclusion for the disabled community looks as simple as able-bodied people being reminded that disabled people simply even “exist.” “We are the largest minority group in the world, and the only one that anyone can become a part of at any moment, so we need to be asking ourselves: Why we are always left out? Too many people have gotten away with [not] addressing disability as a social issue, because they can. You could say that about other [forms of] discrimination – people ignore it because they can. That does not mean they should.”
