UIE Virtual Seminar Presentation (How does this work?)
Designing with color often is a matter of personal preference. But your success in designing a usable, accessible, and internationalized website relies upon your understanding of the physiology, sociology, and color perceptions of your users.
So the question is: Do you know how your color choices are affecting them?
Well, you’re about to find out. Join Molly Holzschlag to hear how gender, culture, and visual impairments affect color perception and understanding. You’ll leave this fascinating seminar with a new appreciation for the term, “the world-wide web”, whenever you make color choices.
You’ll explore the intersection of color and society.
You’ll learn about the persuasive and dissuasive features of color.
You’ll find out how men and women discuss and perceive color.
You’ll design for the conditions that make us human without sacrificing creativity.
If you’ve ever struggled to choose colors suited to men and women in various cultures or use-cases, then this seminar is for you.
The rumors are true: Molly Holzschlag is a force of nature.
For more than two decades, you’ve probably seen her name—Mollydotcom—associated with the web-standards movement. In fact, she’s an invited expert to the W3C, and she trains specialists worldwide on front-end development topics from SEO to Section 508.
Oh and she’s written great books. A lot of them on all those very same topics.
Yet long before her work with the W3C began, Molly had been investigating cultural and sociological influences on the web. Her expertise is apparent from word one, and we know you’ll walk away feeling inspired to reach further in your own design work. Catch her on Twitter @mollydotcom.
Our team has attended almost all of your seminars. Often the topic of the seminar relates to a current design challenge for us.
