Ik ben geen kind meer!

Web | UX, UI, Branding

A website to educate teenagers with Down’s Syndrome about puberty and related topics. I learned a lot about designing for people with disabilites and the importance of understanding your users.

Challenge
The interface and navigation structure needed to be extremely straight-forward and easy to understand. I couldn’t rely on my own experience and had to rethink a lot of conventional design choices.

The budget was another challenge, as I had to prioritise what to spend time on and what to test. 






Look & feel
The homepage presents the topics in a colorful way that invites exploration. On the next page the color is reused in the sidebar to remind you where you are.

The content is structured in sub-categories to remove distractions, and we added text-to-speech functionality for users who struggle with reading.

The wordmark Ik ben geen kind meer! (I am not a child anymore!) was designed like a protest sign, symbolising teenage rebellion. We developed a concept where different users are holding the sign to invoke a feeling of inclusiveness.






Result
The website is live and will be filled with content provided by Stichting DownSyndroom.
