World Interaction Design Day is coming up again, a day on which many events are organised worldwide to celebrate interaction design’s ability to improve the human condition. It’s presented and facilitated by Adobe and IxDA and we are happy to announce that Ladies that UX Amsterdam will be hosting an event as well!
The theme this year is Diversity and Inclusion in Design. We will have a total of four speakers who are all very familiar with this topic!
DESIGNING FOR PEOPLE WHO COMMUNICATE IN DIFFERENT WAYS - 4 THINGS I LEARNT - Saudamini Tambay
Designing apps for users who are Deaf or cannot rely on natural speech has its set of idiosyncrasies and challenges. Saudamini will bring some of these to light by sharing her journey.
UNDERSTANDING CULTURAL DIFFERENCES AND THEIR IMPACT ON DESIGN - Bindu Upadhyay & Anna Hornberger
In the current times, while working with an international audience, we have a lot to think about and act upon. How do we get past the stereotypes and embrace the rich diversity around us? Let’s try to embrace cultural differences to become inclusive designers and humans.
Saudamini Tambay is a UX Designer who’s been working with deaf and non-verbal users to design products that solve their communication needs. At present she works at AssistiveWare where she designs symbol based communication apps for people who cannot communicate using natural speech.
Bindu Upadhyay is an engineer turned UX designer who moved to the Netherlands from India. Leveraging the knowledge of multicultural and multidisciplinary teams at TU/e and WEAREREASONABLEPEOPLE has led to successful collaborations. This sparked her interest to further explore the topic of cultural differences. Anna Hornberger is a UX and service designer from Germany with a background in industrial design. Living in different countries and working on projects for internationally operating clients raised her awareness of cultural differences and the need to take them into consideration when designing.
