Designing for the Aging Population

Hand/Bag applies a system of visual and tactile differentiation to an object often visually confusing to navigate. For the elderly, bad eyesight often impairs daily activities as, for example, finding keys in one's bag. This handbag uses high contrast textures/fabrics to compartmentalize and individualize each area of the bag, allowing more efficient searching and remembering through touch.
