London Web Standards is pleased to announce:

Beautiful Design for Everyone

Monday 24 May 2010 from 6:30pm11:00pm at the Melton Mowbray

All too often, accessibility is something that is tacked on at the end of the design process. At the last minute, we pull out the WCAG checklist and struggle to make changes to our sites to meet a certain level of conformance. It doesn’t have to be this way. If we design with inclusivity as a goal from the beginning of the process, we can create beautiful websites which work for everyone.

Antonia Hyde (@hiantonia) recognises design has an essential role to play in accessibility. Using video footage, Antonia will demonstrate the impact our design choices can have on people finding the information they need on your sites.

Ann McMeekin (@pixeldiva) has a keen eye for the beauty of inclusive design. Giving a number of eye-opening examples—both online and off—Ann will convince you that accessibility and aesthetic appeal are not mutually exclusive.

Tickets

Tickets will be available on the 30th of April at 1:00 pm on Eventbrite.
