Accessible Design ~ Working Towards Accessibility part 2
Posted 3 years ago by Toronto Charities / 93 views
Back by popular demand, this is ‘part 2’ of a similarly themed workshop offered in April of this year. All are welcome, whether you attended the first workshop or not. Please be aware that this workshop is geared towards folks who are already pretty familiar with graphic design and create content to be shared out.
As designers we ask ourselves many questions when creating a new poster, flier, or graphic. Who is the audience? What is the action we want people to take when they see my final product? What emotion or goal do I want to convey with this graphic? But one we all to often forget to ask ourselves is can everybody access my graphic equally? Things such as colour palette, font and layout can either inhibit or encourage accessibility by taking into account the variety of access needs that people have in our society.
Date: Wednesday Sept 12
Location: 426 Bloor St W Social Work Factor-Iwentash Building Room 702 (U of Toronto campus)
