What we're about

SDXD (San Diego Experience Design Professionals Network) is here to enrich the San Diego experience design community. Most members are UX research and design practitioners but we have a broad perspective. We want to bring together anyone who works in, or is simply interested by, the various experience design disciplines and techniques (UX, IxD, usability, prototyping, HCI, service design, industrial design, etc.)

Come make new connections, share ideas, learn best practices, and be inspired. Our meetings are free and open to the public. We welcome people from all fields; you do not have to be an XD professional to attend.

Adobe x GA x SDXD Present: Making Motion Inclusive ft. Val Head

🚨Please RSVP at https://generalassemb.ly/education/ga-sdxd-adobe-making-motion-inclusive/san-diego/188997 to receive the event Zoom link!🚨

Join GA, Adobe, and SDXD for a workshop on Making Motion Inclusive presented by Val Head, Design Evangelist at Adobe.

About the workshop

Let's clear the air about UI animation and inclusive design. It's a common misconception that things like inclusive design and accessibility only come at the cost of design details like motion, but that's just not the case. Whether it's microinteractions, animated illustrations, or larger animated experiences, a little care and consideration can go a long way towards getting the best of both worlds. In this session, Val will show you how to build animated interactions with inclusivity in mind from the start. We'll discuss how to apply web accessibility guidelines to product design, when and how to implement reduced motion, and approaches to building up animated interactions with accessibility in mind.
