Empathetic design with Boey Wang
During the Ch… Ch… Changes conference, designer Boey Wang observed that our world is very visually oriented. Last year during DDW, he showed a collection of kitchenware that helps people with visual impairment.
According to Boey, if you want to design for someone else, it is necessary to understand their motivation and emotions. This is why he works with educational institutions; he set up a training course for future designers. Within that training, students could not see anything for two days. He challenged them to discover the reasons why they design.
