Q&A
What do you like about interaction design?
I like that it's all about finding a way to connect our world to the digital one, and that these connections can take any form you can imagine.

Can I have a bite of your food?
No.

FUN FACTS
I have no sense of smell.

I have a lot of weird hobbies, like mounted orchid cultivation and calligraphy.

Before IxD, I worked in animal care for almost 10 years. (Not smelling helped!)

#A11y

Social
UX
Visual Design

#A11y stands for “Accessibility,” but it also looks like ally: something every designer should be to disabled users.

why?

I wanted to make an interactive comic, but in researching how to make it accessible, I accidentally found my real thesis project: researching and visualizing methods to ensure your content reaches an online audience of all abilities.

what?

#A11y is a guide on web accessibility and WCAG 2.0 requirements, the benchmark as recommended by the AODA. It means “Accessibility,” with the 11 standing for the letters in between a and y, but what it really resembles is “Ally:” what every designer should be to disabled users.

how?

While trying to adapt a very visual media to be accessible to those with visual impairments, I began compiling a document that outlined my findings on simple accessibility considerations. As it grew, it became apparent that accessible design is not just conducive to disabled users having a barrier-free experience; i's conducive to good design and good user experience, too.
