With World Usability Day and Web Directions falling on the same day, we couldn't let the chance go by to have a fun-filled event to bring the accessibility, UX and digital inclusion communities together!
Join us on November 10, where we'll have a number of presentations on digital inclusion and why it matters. You'll also have the chance to meet plenty of new faces (and hopefully see some familiar ones too!).
Refreshments will also be provided. Doors open at 7.00pm and presentations will start at 7.30pm.
Patima Tantiprasut - Empathy, design, shoes and more
There’s so much more to great design than the aesthetics. Great design can communicate, connect and enable people in so many ways. At the core of it, we want to remember what it is we’re designing for – people. Human beings are wonderfully unique, complex and diverse. It’s through understanding and embracing diversity, that we can create better, more considerate experiences for all.
In this talk, Patima will be exploring inclusive design, why it matters and how even the smallest details, from colours, to font treatments to even language, can make a huge difference to individuals.
Adem Cifcioglu - Putting users first - The new Coles Online
In redeveloping their online shopping platform, to make it faster, more usable and more accessible, Coles put the user at the centre of the whole process.
In this presentation, Adem will walk through the whole process from design to development and showcase some of the lessons we learnt along the way as we tested with real users.
