Inclusive Inputs at FITC Web Unleashed 2018

What if form inputs were representative of our modern society, and operated in spectrums rather than binaries? It’s time we re-think this age-old input pattern.

As developers, product designers, and digital creators of all kinds, we’re making products for people across the globe. This scope of influence is vast and expansive; geographically and socially. It’s time we get a formative lesson in inclusive form design; we need to make sure we’re not excluding swaths of our the population in a traditional form’s narrow view of identity.

Need a solid tweet from this talk? I’ve got you covered.

“Because of the human factors behind forms, it’s not a binary input. There’s a lot of “it depends” that comes out of these scenarios. Putting your work in front of these communities is what will help you paint the spectrum that’s right for your product.”
