In 1990 the American with Disabilities Act help pave the way for individuals with disabilities. However, the law pertains to physical disability accommodations in jobs, transportation, schools, and all public and private places—not cognitive, social, or intellectual disabilities. Our partners at Welcome Inclusion (WIN) want to advocate for these individuals. WIN is a public awareness initiative to “promote a world of inclusion” for children and adults with intellectual, behavioral and social differences through three key activities: awareness, community and training. To help elevate the initiative, WIN reached out to Tactile to design the logo and branded campaign materials. The WIN logo will be applied to businesses and organizations that partner with WIN, advocating an inclusive environment for those with differences. We’re proud to be a part of an influential initiative and making an impact through design.

Designing Lifesaving Technology for EKOS®

Designing medical products isn’t just an expertise at Tactile, it’s a specialty—we love being a part of making an impact on lifesaving tools. Our partners at EKOS® received US FDA approval in February 2017 for one of their newest products, the EKOS Control Unit 4.0. The EKOS Control Unit 4.0 provides the power to the EKOS System’s ultrasonic core device that uses acoustic pulses to efficiently and safely dissolve blood clots and restore blood flow in patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). Looking to refresh their PE treatment device, EKOS enlisted Tactile to redesign EKOS Control Unit 4.0, the user interface, and the system’s packaging.
