what does the future hold for designers?

Designers, and we don’t specifically mean web designers, are all part of the tapestry of the web. Web designer has a broad remit, and can include UI/UX designers, graphic designers and 3D/animation artists. Why are we clarifying this? Because we are taking a look at 2019 AIGA Design Census, which includes a wide berth of design disciplines. So what is the AIGA Design Census? It is an annual report put together by AIGA, the professional association for design, and Google.

make your apps accessible to all

The ability to access, abbreviated as accessibility, refers to the design of products that can be used by people with disabilities. New government regulations mean websites and apps in the public sector must now be accessible to all. Making your app accessible means you must consider a range of challenges a customer may face, ensuring that as many people as possible can use it. For instance, those with impaired vision, motor difficulties, cognitive or learning difficulties as well as deafness or impaired hearing. Designing an accessible app means much more than simply making the design clearer. You must design an app that is adaptable to those throughout the spectrum and support those who need the apps extra, accessible functions.
