Agency
for inclusive design

We are inkl. Each day we design inclusion: with products and services, strategic consultancy and accessible wayfinding systems.

At inkl.Design, the focus is on diversity. That’s why we think, design, consult, produce and research with a lot of curiosity and know-how to make design work for everyone.

Whether for clients in the cultural, educational and social sectors, in tourism or business, we are all about practical, well-designed and meaningful solutions that respond to the needs of people and the demands of places.

Inclusion is our aim. Design is our tool.
We for you and all for inkl.

We were awarded.
We are proud of that.

The really big joy …

Sometimes in life you get good news that make you almost burst with joy. And sometimes, when it is really, really good news, you are asked not to reveal it immediately, but to hold off for a while.

On the 28th of January, we will be allowed to announce a piece of news that already makes our stomachs tingle and the corners of our mouths smile.

Are you also already excited? Take another look here on the 28th of January.

Inclusion in the Hamburg libraries

What happens when a large state library takes up the slogan: “We want to become the second living room for the people of Hamburg”? It can’t avoid the topic of inclusion. Where millions of users borrow books and other media, communities use work spaces and hundreds of books are read every day, all people should be included and find what they are looking for. That is why we have been working on this change with the Bücherhallen Hamburg for many months.

An inclusion concept is in place, now it’s time to implement it. For the bookworms and learners of German, the partially sighted, the wheelchair users, the experts and the first-time readers, we will make the Hamburg libraries fit for the future.

We will report more soon.

Hello to Vivian
and Nadja

The weather is gloomy, the days are getting shorter again. The leaves are falling from the trees. But we are lucky enough to welcome two new, bright faces to our ranks. Say hello to Nadja and Vivian, who will be joining us as interns for the winter semester.

Nadja Matlok is studying Integrated Product Design at the Coburg University of Applied Sciences. Vivian Baath is studying Communication Design at the HTW Berlin University of Applied Sciences.

Welcome to our team.
We are happy to work with you.

Groundbreaking
on the sidelines

The year 2021 began for us with a special kind of kick-off: we won the competition for the wayfinding system of the football stadium in Leipzig. 11 “inkl designers” and the first Bundesliga! 

After seven months of concentrated work, we can report that the project landed on the dot: The main design is hanging and looks good. Other areas will be added soon. 

And we still have many ideas on the subject of inclusion in football.

Graphics Good things need Braille

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!

Even small steps help

It is not always necessary to undertake a large-scale project to improve the accessibility of a cultural institution. Because before changes are not made due to a lack of money, small steps can also lead to a bigger impact. Mobile orientation maps, for example, make it possible to get an overview of a building. Equipped with tactile lines, they provide necessary information not only for blind visitors.

We produced these maps for the Museum Hölderlinturm in Tübingen. Together with an audio guide, an important inclusive offer is now available.

Tamara Ströter on the project at the Neanderthal Museum:

“I think
the feet are funny.
You always would like
to tickle them.”

Christopher Lehmpfuhl on the project at Gottorf Castle:

“I am very pleased
that blind visitors
also have access
to my paintings.”
