We love design solutions that really work. Inkl. Design is a full service agency. We focus on inclusive design and communication for all.

Accessible languages

“Every ‘inkl’ is an inventor, explorer and pioneer. We never stop thinking outside the box. ‘inkls’ are a team and our know-how is there for you. We want our designs to work for all people and all people to enjoy our designs.”

Gregor Strutz, CEO

New projects

Inclusion brought to the top

A mighty mountain of bobbin lace is piled on the head of the “Little Princess”. But not only the lace is un­believably precious, the painting it­self is also one of the most valuable in the Oldenburg City Museum. We have made the painting tangible, so blind and visually challenged visitors to the museum also experience what the little one is wearing on her head. Top, isn’t it?

Stand out with Braille!

Do you also want to? Then we have something for you! Because we not only design, we now also print everything that has to do with Braille.

Whether it’s business cards, stickers, brochures, maps or whatever, we can realize it for you.

Ask us and discover our possibilities!

Want to help build something?

We inkls see ourselves as pioneers of a design, which leaves traditional paths. Because inclusive design creates high-quality solutions and products for people with and without disabilities.

Years ago, we entered this difficult path, won recognition and prizes, but also paid apprenticeship fees. Now we want to strengthen ourselves with committed people. If you want to go this way with us, you should apply – as an employee, freelancer or intern. We are curious about you.

Inclusion, will you marry us

… in the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum Leipzig with the oversized tactile model of Martin Luther’s wedding ring? In the original, the ruby ring measures just under two centimetres in diameter. We thought: bigger is better! Even people who can see well now have the chance to see all the motifs that an unknown artist subsequently placed on the ring.

Gregor speaks in the Brut magazine about design and inclusion

Beautiful design is indispensable for both analogue or digital projects. But what does “beautiful” mean for someone who can’t see or hear? In an interview, Gregor Strutz talks about his studies at the HTW Berlin and about the importance of inclusive design for people who are often forgotten in the usual design process.

You can watch the very entertaining video here in German:

inkl. at INSIGHT’18 in India

At the invitation of the National Institute of Design (NID) of India, we wrote a paper for the international Design Research Symposium in Ahmedabad at the beginning of November 2018 and gave a talk at the event. The topic: “How Germany’s First Inclusive Children’s Book Was Created Through Cooperation Between Various Specialists”.

The response was extremely positive and showed how important the international exchange of specialist knowledge is for the development of innovative, inclusive design solutions.
