SOUR Talks on Inclusive Designers Podcast

March 7, 2023

Hosted by Janet Roche & Carolyn Robbins, the Inclusive Designers podcast is a collaborative forum for designers to share creative ideas for different human conditions. Advocacy, student showcases, and of course design, are all included in these podcasts.

  • Chronic health conditions and social determinants of health can influence the way a person is treated and how they see themselves.
  • Designing with dignity can positively impact an individual and a community.
  • Detailed attention to design elements at home and in the community can support treatment, improve quality of life, and minimize exacerbation of health conditions.

Design elements can be beautiful, person-centered, functional, and part of a comprehensive treatment plan. The more a designer understands the client and/or the community, the more effective and respectful the design will be.

Living In A VUCA World – The Importance Of Co-Design!

In this episode, SOUR and Janet explore the importance of co-design in a ‘VUCA’ (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world, and why language matters when designing. Inclusive Designers Podcast gets SOUR’s Partner, Pinar Guvenc’s’ honest opinions from whether bad design is just an ego thing, to why seemingly reasonable approaches (like active listening) are the key to GREAT design. We also learn a bit about how Janet’s bathroom reno for her father is going and the challenges she is facing to re-fit a beautiful, but not necessarily functional, space.
