Designers Focus On Gender Neutral Gadgets
from the gadgets-for-everyone dept
While, historically, most people have thought of gadgets as being something that mostly men were into, it’s no secret that (increasingly) “chicks dig gadgets” too. So, it come as no surprise that the designers of consumer electronics and other gadgets are less and less interested in specifically designing products for men or for women, but are looking for designs that appeal to everyone. As someone in the article points out, if you’re just designing for a particular gender segment, you may miss out on plenty of good design ideas. This all makes sense, but there is something to be said for targeting specific segments as well. Not everything should be designed to appeal to every single person.
