Better Life by Design
Published: 24 Mar 2017
The publication of Veryday’s social innovation project for Singapore Government Better Life by Design was launched during the Singapore Design week 2017. The project, which aims to improve quality of life for people with disabilities, recently received an IF Design Award in the Service Design category.
Together with the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg) and the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), our design team embarked on an intriguing and rewarding journey to innovate and reimagine social services in the Southeast Asian country – ultimately improving quality of life for people with disabilities. By using an inclusive design approach, we’ve gained crucial insights of how people with disabilities live, work and interact with the society and how they experience current social services.
The research from the winning entry Better Life by Design: Designing for persons with disabilities has now been compiled into a publication. The book was launched during Singapore Design Week 2017 and covers ethnography, research, insights, global trends; and identifies opportunities for improving lives of people with disabilities.
