Design and Exclusion (Animation)

Short, ambient glitch animation for the Design and Exclusion conference.


We tend to think of the digital products and services we build as tools that promote equality and access. Yet we often create inhospitable, uncomfortable, and non-inclusive spaces despite our best intentions, and despite design’s overarching goal to foster inclusion.

Exclusion can be driven by conscious hatred. But we sometimes also fuel it with our own ignorance. Designers may not be able to address the former, but the latter opens up multiple directions for change.
