The future of design – where inclusion should be a norm, not a necessity

Could our tried-and-tested design recipes end up becoming irrelevant? Now more than ever, there’s a desire for designing and communicating something that feels real, and exploring how to express real emotions is a large part of that.How does an industry move beyond standardized inclusion efforts and embrace the broad spectrum of human emotion, as well as embracing the wide range of human identities. In this talk, Sketch’s Design Advocate Layshi Curbelo will shed a light on future designs where humane and inclusive approaches should be the norms, not necessities.
