I am a designer specialized in tactile graphic design. My career spans almost thirty years in which I have developed a wide range of design skills and expertise. By combining my professional experience as a designer with firsthand knowledge of visual disabilities and braille, I am in the unique position to create inclusive and accessible designs. In 2014 I set up BrailleDots as a platform to promote the use of braille by researching and initiating tactile design projects, either independently or in collaboration with others.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I welcome opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations. Should you have any comments or questions then I look forward to hearing from you. You can also follow me on @AMConefrey or linkedIn.
I began my career as a designer at the end of the 80’s, having graduated in graphic design and typographic design from the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague. Graphic (printing) techniques, type design, calligraphy, typography and photography not only formed the basis of my study but continue to play an active role in my creative development. We started our partnership in 1993 after a kick-start working for several years by well-known studios: Total Design in Amsterdam, followed by 2D3D in the Hague.
