“Inclusivity is at the heart of user-centric design approach, which considers not just the average user, but all users.

To design for all users, you need to consider their physical abilities, experiences, expectations, values, beliefs, and much more.”

“The tendency to register and categorize things, whether it be one’s identity, body type, or aesthetic preferences, is a natural part of online life. People have a penchant for naming elusive digital phenomena, but TikTok has only accelerated the use of cutesy aesthetic nomenclature.”
