Simon Dogger is a designer with a whole new point of view. He graduated the Design Academy Eindhoven as a blind designer, with an ability to listen and feel, and a strong drive to regain his independence. Not seeing himself as handicapped, but as someone who takes in information differently, he sets out to explore more inclusive forms of communication. His concepts and designs combine visual, auditory and sensory means to improve the quality of life. Not only for the visually impaired, but for all people who could benefit from self-empowering, intuitive tools that help them connect with others and their surroundings.

Simon discussed his perspective as a designer and the development of his project The emotion Whisperer.
