KEYNOTE: Jeremy Keith: Design Principles For The Web

Designing and developing on the web can feel like a never-ending crusade against the unknown. Design principles are one way of unifying your team to better fight this battle. But as well as the design principles specific to your product or service, there are core principles underpinning the very fabric of the World Wide Web itself. Together, we’ll dive into applying these design principles to build websites that are resilient, performant, accessible, and beautiful.

Stewart Kyasimire: Designing, Diversity and Inclusion

I have always been the only Black designer in all my roles. As the lead designer I pushed for more diversity to no avail. Now I work in the Film and TV space, I am met with a similar experience. Young creatives need to see people that look like them in leadership roles. I have the Linkedin, Twitter and Instagram messages that can confirm this. I’d like to speak to the white design community and share my experience and hopefully this will help the colourful diverse creatives I yearned for.

Damien Gallagher: Beauty in an age of metrics

We put a lot of energy into making sure our digital products solve user problems. We strive to understand, predict and influence human behaviour in order to maximise efficiency for our users and create services they can’t live without. In all of that, we can easily lose sight of the qualities of what we’re producing and, most importantly, the emotional accessibility of the experience, which is key to real people considering and then continuing to use your product. This talk aims to unpack how to articulate, discuss and advocate for quality when everyone else is talking numbers.
