July 6th, 2019 #14: Respect

Our 14th event will take place at Forward Festival Hamburg. This time Ayla Guerbuez, Interaction Designer, and Isabelle von Moeller, UX Writer will talk about „Respect”:
 
„We always talk about user experience. Of user interfaces. And user centered design. But if we are honest, the user plays only a minor role in the development of digital products and services. Attention is only paid to the leading roles: technology, brands and Google. It’s time to make websites, apps and online shops more human again. Therefore we need new, more diverse personas. Away from cliché users and stereotypes. It needs texts that don’t exclude, a concept that goes beyond the business goal and designs that don’t serve any drawers and don’t just exist because they are seen as trends by Apple or Google.
 
Together with intersexual people, we develop a user experience that also appeals to and respects them.“

The vast majority of graphic design students are women, yet only about one tenth of all creative directors are female. Let's change this, hand in hand. By meeting regularly, exchanging experiences and learning from each other, we will be able to promote equality in the creative workforce. Would you like to read more on and around this subject?
