Design in a Web 2.0 World: Beyond Glossy & Gradients

A session at Higher Education Web Symposium

Wednesday 16th July, 2008

3:15pm to 4:30pm (EST)

The term “Web 2.0” is thrown around like any popular buzzword these days, but what does it really mean? During this presentation, Patrick Haney, a user interface designer at Harvard University, will discuss the true meaning of the popular term and how the social aspect of today’s web does not directly relate to the design style of websites.

In this session, Patrick will present the concepts and philosophy behind the Web 2.0 world and show how designers can do without gradients, big buttons and glossy logos and still achieve a beautiful website using more appropriate design elements.
