As a web designer you may feel happier leaving the complexities of e-commerce, hosting and programming to developers. However, being able to talk confidently about these concepts to clients and the rest of your team can be a real benefit. In addition when designing for web applications – an understanding of the underlying code can ensure that the application works well and data is displayed effectively.
Rachel Andrew, a web developer with over 10 years experience of working alongside designers, will talk about and clarify the main areas where confusion occurs – no coding required!
Sarah will be showing you how to design beautiful interfaces for iOS devices. Evolving what you already know as a web designer and creatively using this knowledge to construct iOS specific websites and apps. Stuffed with practical knowledge, you’ll need a large notepad!

Evolution. It’s a wonderful thing, and something that needs to occur for natural progression and the continuing advancement of ideas. As we see the modern trends, development paradigms and design practices evolve into different areas utilising newer technologies, should we really be saying goodbye to our old ways in favour of the new approach?
Join Matt Gifford as he invites you to partake in a presentation with an emphasis on attendee input (with rewards) in a discussion to help understand what makes the web great, how we communicate in the modern world, and as a result whether or not we should leave the big screen behind entirely in favour of new formats.
The practice of user experience has grown more sophisticated, produced higher quality online products, and gained wider acceptance beyond the design community. Still, so many potentially wonderful experiences disappoint and many talented design teams are excluded from decisions that fundamentally affect the experience. Why? Two words: ineffective communication.
Attendees will learn specific, proven techniques that can be applied in their own work environment to streamline communication and build more team cohesion. Sarah will present a variety of tools and strategies that have proven useful and highly effective for building arguments, communicating clearly with stakeholders, building trust, and gaining a seat at the strategic table.
Attendees will leave empowered to apply these techniques in their own practice and develop their own tools to suit their personality and work environment.
