Third-year graphic design students Megan Olexa, Emma Echol and Jennifer Dami test prototypes of tactile icon systems for home appliances intended to support individuals with vision impairment with guest evaluator Kay Rhinebeck. The Tactile Icons Project is a collaboration between Professor Deborah Beardslee’s Information Design Class and Anne DeWitte of Tangible Surface Research. Beardslee and DeWitte initially connected at RIT’s Effective Access Technology Conference in early November and swiftly created this unique opportunity for the graphic design students.
