Design for Good & Accessibility

Jan 24, 2018 · , Ireland

Design for Good is an ethos that can use problem-solving and design thinking towards positive social change. For designers it offers an opportunity to move from a good designer, to a great one.

This session will look at two aspects under this umbrella. The first talk will be from the charity Gorta, who have done an interesting self-assessment of their charity work and the true value and impact it has. It's a reflection that took over 5 years to achieve.
The second session will be from the Aer Lingus Head of Accessibility and QA. Brian will talk us through the usability of a website for those with disabilities and the simple mistakes that would make huge improvements to peoples lives if they were fixed. 6:00pm - We'll be in Starbucks next door, if anyone is close by and wants to start networking early
