Publication

Introduction
Hola Design For All is a digital publication that brings together a series of interviews conducted with professionals of very diverse profiles who all share a single vision: they have all found in human diversity and in Design for All a new impulse for creation, creativity and competitiveness within their organisations and enterprises. The interviews are published online at fortnightly intervals.

Hola Design For All is the first of a set of actions initiated by the Design for All committee of the Col·legi Oficial de Disseny Gràfic de Catalunya (Official Graphic Design Association of Catalonia, CODGC) to disseminate the strategic value of Design for All as applied to communication design.

The interviews that appear in Hola Design For All form part of a monographic on ‘Design for All in Catalonia’ whose publication is planned for the forthcoming trimester of 2016.
