for inclusive design

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

The oil painting shows Albertine Albert in a wedding dress in front of a red, slightly opened curtain. In front of the artwork is the accompanying tactile model including explanation in Braille.

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.

This year 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! Seven months of concentrated work and a soft opening later, 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.

We will report more soon.

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!

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.

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.

Not Stone Age at all

Today, the Neanderthal Museum is located very close to the place where the world-famous Homo Neanderthalensis was found more than 160 years ago.

Here, visitors go on a journey through 4 million years of the history of mankind – for the first time and so far uniquely consistently implemented, blind and visually impaired people now also enjoy a fully autonomous museum experience in the Neanderthal Museum. So it’s a fairly modern return to the Stone Age in Mettmann.

We will report more soon.

Would you like to help build something?

We “inkl Designers” see ourselves as pioneers of a design that leaves the beaten track. Because inclusive design creates high-quality solutions for people with and without disabilities.

Years ago, we set out on this difficult path, won recognition and prizes, but also paid a lesson. Now we want to strengthen ourselves with committed people. If you want to walk this path with us, you should apply – as an employee, freelancer or intern. We are curious about you.
