Accessibility in UX Design: How we redesigned The University of West London’s website for everyone.

Prerequisites

For anybody interested in user-centered design.

Session details

A session focused around about the importance of accessibility in design, showcasing examples from industry giants such as Microsoft. Highlighting that accessible design is not just for people with a permanent disability but also someone with a temporary and situational disability.

James Genchi, a 27-year-old UX Designer from CTI Digital in Manchester.

During his career, James has worked a number of award-winning digital campaigns for some of the world’s biggest brands.

CTI Digital recently redesigned the University of West London’s website. In this session, James will talk about our discovery process and how we applied our findings to the final product, from ensuring all design elements have sufficient colour contrast, conducting user interviews with visually impaired prospective students and extensive user testing.
