Welcome to User Driven Design. This is a hub for anyone interested in the role that users play in the design process. Whether you’re a user, a designer, an entrepreneur or a funder, this site is a meeting place where ideas can be shared, challenges aired, and solutions generated, ideally with contributions from multiple individuals/groups. The impetus for this site was the lack of good design of products and services for individuals with disabilities in Ireland. At a time when design is front and centre in the field of mobile technologies, clothing, transport and communications, it’s an ideal opportunity to apply these same principles to benefit the widest possible population of end users. We welcome your contributions to these discussions.
“Some people see things as they are and ask ‘why?’. Others dream things that never were and ask ‘why not?’” – Robert F. Kennedy.
