User Research for the Deaf Community

Hello everyone!

My name is Jasmine Calderon and I am an interaction design student at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, California. I am conducting my senior thesis on the Deaf community and I want to learn more about the communication preferences of the deaf.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any local deaf community organizations who I may contact for a research interview? I am also interested in contacting designers who find themselves working in this field for feedback/insights.


If you are on Twitter contact me there and I’ll put you in touch with Nancy Frishberg who is a designer/user researcher in the Bay Area and who has a lengthy history in deaf culture and would be the best person I can think of to point you in the right direction.
