“The most powerful person in the world is the story teller. The storyteller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation that is to come”

— Steve Jobs
  • What Does a Foldable Web Actually Mean? While flip phones are so last decade, the talk about foldable devices is on the rise and with them, the talk of a ‘foldable web’. Dual screens and multitasking possibilities are hyped up with the foldable possibilities but this could mean new challenges, new opportunities, and new syntax to support the vision.

A ramp is accessible for everyone and not made specifically for users who are hard of walking. This is an example of a design that is both inclusive and accessible.
