Equitable access to public information and the role of the graphic designer

Christine Woolley, a graduate student in the OCAD University Inclusive Design program, invites graphic designers, design students and design educators, who are based or received design education in B.C., to participate in a research study on accessibility in graphic design and the role graphic designers play in providing equitable access to public information.


The goal of the research is to investigate the ability of the graphic design community in B.C. to successfully meet the requirements of the newly passed Accessible British Columbia Act and to co-create a framework and set of recommendations on how government can support the graphic design industry during this transition.
