  • Mobile UI and fried chicken (or how angry birds will kill us all)

    by Arran Ross-Paterson

    Key points: this session with give practical take aways rather than inspirational concepts & there will be haribo.

    Theres a lot of buzz around mobile design, examining adaptive designs, creating focus etc and these are all good forward thinking moves and highly relevant, but as so often happens accessibility is being forgotten. The first thing that will jump to most peoples minds is the image of a blind person but for many users mobile devices are actually wonderfully accessible to the blind but are next to unusable for people with physical disabilities. I intend to look at how many well known design conventions for desktop are inverted for mobile, how Fitts law has been turned on its head and show how a basic understanding of ergonomics is now massively important and will change design conventions over the coming years, and I will discuss how these aspects dont just affect disabled users, they affect every single user of mobile devices.
