Moreover the contacts established with two graphic designers Thierry Wijnberg and Gregor Strutz, which were presenting the projects – “Revisiting Braille” and  “Braille can still do much more” – were important to reinforce the idea that a Graphic Design methodology can help to promote Braille and include the tactile alphabet as part of Universal design.
