Towards a global design


A fully equipped environment enables everyone to use them. The way they are designed gives them independence in movement and access, vision, hearing, and effective communication. They are free from engineering barriers and are responsive to the diversity of needs and differences.  It’s an environment that gives priority to people from the design process, to respond to needs and differences, maintaining dignity, independence, and personal freedom. The importance of an equipped environment is to remove obstacles that assume an unnecessary effort, often characteristic of one person to another, resulting in "accessibility/obstacle free, assistive technologies, information society, digital technology, global design and design for all". This environment enables everyone to participate equally, confidently and independently in everyday activities.  

Global Design Principles:

It’s a relatively new model, resulting from the concepts of "accessible environment", "co-design" and "assistive technology". Global design seeks to represent a comprehensive solution to help everyone, not just people with disabilities. It is product design and environment to be used by all people, to the greatest degree of use possible, without the need for air conditioning.

Fair use:

To be useful and marketable to people with different abilities.

  • Secure usage methods for all users: identical if possible, and balanced if not identical.
  • Avoid discrimination against any user.
  • Secure privacy, security, and protection for all users.
  • Make the design appealing to all users.

Flexibility in use:

to suit the varying tastes and abilities of individuals.

  • Multiple options in the methods used. 
  • Accessibility and accessibility for all. 
  • Facilitate the accuracy and correctness of user's work. 
  • Secure the air conditioning according to the speed of the user.

Simple use:

The user can easily understand the design, regardless of his or her experiences, knowledge, language abilities or level of concentration.

  • Remove unnecessary complications.
  • Keeping pace with user expectations and intuition.
  • Secure a wide fan of language skills (words, signs, illustrations).
  • Organize information by importance.
  • Secure information effectively and repeatedly during and after use.

Noteworthy information:

This design delivers the necessary information effectively, regardless of the circumstances or sensory capabilities of users.
