Full Bio – Lauren Race


Accessibility Designer combining human-centered, multisensory, and co-design methods to craft and evaluate accessible experiences through product design, design systems, UX research, design reviews, upskilling design orgs, and design strategy and innovation. My work is informed by my design research at the NYU Ability Project and IAAP CPACC certification.

My design journey began focusing on the visual, attending Pratt Institute to learn art and design and working as an art director for over a decade. To shift from the brand to the user, I earned my master’s at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). It was there that I fell in love with accessibility design. I expanded my design practice to include all sensory modalities, increasing access for assistive technology users who learn best through touch, sight, and/or audio.

When I’m not at work, I’m usually at the Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library developing tactile art and design techniques, teaching Multisensory Design at ITP, and researching the design of accessible museum interfaces with the Intrepid Museum.
