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

On the 75th anniversary of the liberation, the Concentration Camp Memorial takes another important step towards accessibility. Inkl. Design developed a detailed, haptically appealing and stable tactile model for outdoor use. A tactile booklet, which can be carried along, supports the tour of the extensive grounds. Both products provide an overview of the memorial site today and compare it with the size of the Concentration Camp in 1945. The accessible presentation consists of audio descriptions, Braille, profile writing and high-contrast elements in German and English.
We will report more soon.
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!
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.
To help visually challenged and blind visitors to easily find their way around the building, we designed and produced tactile orientation plans. The zigzag floor plan of the new building, designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, impresses guests from all over the world. Now blind people can also understand why the building is so special.
In addition, we have realised two paintings that are shown in the new permanent exhibition as tactile paintings. The fine wedding dress of Albertine Heine can thus also be explored by touch, just like the painting “Sabbath”, which the painter Jankel Adler put on canvas.
We admit that it has been a little while since we implemented the inclusive wayfinding system for the University of Rostock together with our colleagues from Büro Baldauf. Nevertheless, wie are very proud that it is now presented in the “Intelligent Wayfinding” section of the design book “Designing Orientation” … Isn’t it wonderful to be allowed to enjoy your own work even years later?
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.
