The Craft of Web Typography

— by The Standardistas

Standardistas

This workshop, delivered in the tried and tested Standardistas' Style® will introduce the wonders rich web typography offers.

Creating typographically rich and inspiring designs has never been easier and offers significant benefits and opportunities for a Retina ready future. In this workshop we'll introduce some fundamentals of typography, drawn from a long tradition, and explore the new visual language that rich web type now offers.

Armed with this fundamental knowledge and an abundance of typographic tools – not to mention the Standardistas' 'Bag of Awesome' * – we show the aspiring typographer the tricks of the trade through a series of hands-on typographic exercises.

By the end of an intensive, but enjoyable day, participants will have acquired a wealth of typographic knowledge on which to build, ensuring that they leave inspired and ready to apply their new-found skills to create beautifully crafted web type experiences.

* Complimentary for every workshop participant. Nice.

Accessibility for UX Designers

— by Derek Featherstone

Derek Featherstone

User Experience practitioners are in a unique position to effectively champion accessibility within their teams and organizations. You are trusted advisors and connect with all the right stakeholders for a project, including the people that will use the product you're building. You are most often the person that connects the big picture with in the trenches hands-on work

Filled with practical advice and examples from real projects, this session will provide you with an in-depth look at accessibility requirements for the modern web, recognize accessibility challenges earlier in the design process and communicate accessibility concepts more clearly with the rest of your team. This is not your typical accessibility workshop -- you'll get both the strategies and tactics you need to make a difference as you tackle real design problems for real people.

You'll learn:

  • How to integrate accessibility into the design process the right way (hint: it isn't just a rubber stamp at the end of a project!)
  • Why developers need you, why you need them, and how you can help make each other's lives easier.
  • How you can use accessibility as a design tool to simply create designs that are better for everyone
  • Methods for communicating accessibility requirements effectively with your teams (both internal and external)
  • The top 5 things that MUST be specified in order to successfully implement accessibility in a project
