Event description

Description

In support of World Interaction Design Day (IXDD), Adobe Systems and IxDASF present an evening devoted to the subject of inclusive design.

Every design decision has the potential to include or exclude customers. Inclusive design emphasizes the contribution that understanding user diversity makes to informing these decisions, and thus to including as many people as possible. User diversity covers variation in capabilities, needs and aspirations.

Come learn about methods and tools today’s designers utilize to determine how well their products and services perform for universal audiences.

6:00PM -- Doors open -- Come early networking and refreshments generously provided by Adobe

7:00PM -- Talks begin

8:30PM -- Event ends
