The Aesthetic-Accessibility Paradox Every interface has a subset of users that make up the majority and minority. The majority of users usually have normal vision, while the minority have some form of visual impairment.
There’s a big difference between what normal visioned users see versus what color blind and low vision users see. These users tend to experience blurry text and faint elements when text size and color contrast are too low.
The goal of accessibility is to meet the needs of the minority because they’re often forgotten. But what happens when meeting the needs of the minority ends up failing the needs ...
Hackstock épisode 10 : hacking & graphisme ! Depuis qu’on a commencé le podcast Hackstock, Jérémie et moi voulions dédier un épisode à l’esthétique autour du hacking, au graphisme, aux codes visuels, à la typographie dans ce domaine. On y retrouve donc pas mal de petites choses que vous connaissez peut-être (le l33t sp34k, le masque des anonymous, LéCriTurEDeViLaiNPirAte, j’en passe) et bien d’autres sujets que nous avons essayer de creuser pour vous.

The Myths of Color Contrast Accessibility There’s a growing demand for designers to make their interfaces accessible to all users. It’s important to accommodate users with disabilities, but there are many myths to color contrast accessibility being perpetuated by misinformed people.
They often parrot these myths to discredit a design, without understanding in which situations a color contrast standard applies. Not only that, but they assume an interface is inaccessible whenever color contrast is used to convey information.
Because of this, designers often feel the need to obsess over accessibility, and are misled into believing their interface isn’t accessible when it actually is. This article debunks ...
Why You Should Learn UI/UX Design with Springboard There’s often confusion between what user experience and the user interface is. They sound the same, but the UI is not the UX. The user interface is the tool and medium that shapes the user experience. When you design the UI, you have direct influence on the UX.
UX designers need to learn UI design so they can communicate their insights in accurate detail to get project stakeholders on board with their vision. Clear UI communication makes it easier for companies to create excellent experiences for their users.
A great way to learn UI design is to take Springboard’s UI/UX ...
Leçon inaugurale pour l’ouverture de Strate Lyon Ce matin, j’ai assisté à l’inauguration de la première rentrée de l’école de design Strate à Lyon. Invité par le directeur Lyon Guillaume Lom Puech & par Dominique Sciamma, directeur général de Strate, j’avais la mission de faire une « leçon inaugurale ». En théorie, une leçon inaugurale est un moment où un intervenant parle de ses travaux, et du milieu professionnel dans lequel il évolue. Évidemment, suite à mon article d’il y a une dizaine de jours sur l’enseignement du design, je ne pouvais pas faire l’impasse sur ce sujet dont je venais à peine de parler.
Alors plutôt ...

Comment continuer d’enseigner le design ? Voilà de nombreuses années que j’enseigne le design, que j’interviens dans des écoles sous forme de cours, de workshop, de conférences. Je suis intervenu dans des écoles comme l’ENSCI, le Lycée des Arènes, Strate, les Gobelins, Estienne, l’École Bleue, l’École de Design de Nantes, la Webschool, les Beaux-Arts de Cambrai, E-ArtSup, l’École de Communication Visuelle, la Sorbonne, Science Po également…

Anthropocène & design : les étudiants s’y intéressent. Chaque mois je reçois des e-mails d’étudiants en design qui souhaitent échanger avec moi sur ces questions d’anthropocène, d’effondrement, de collapsologie et même de survivalisme parfois 😉 Cela vient sûrement de cet article ou de la conférence que j’ai faite à Blend où je parle de tout ça et peut-être aussi de mes intérêts que je partage ici.
Le sujet est vaste, passionnant, à la mode aussi, et pourtant ces échangent avec ces jeunes et moins jeunes me révèlent plusieurs choses importantes :
le design se doit de rester à l’écoute de son époque et interagir avec / pour / ...

Quel avenir pour les sites « low-tech » ? Hello 🙂 Ça fait un bail que je n’ai pas écrit sur mon blog mais ne vous en faites pas, je ne suis pas mort, j’ai juste fait le plein de changements dans ma vie ! Voilà plusieurs années que je questionne l’environnement numérique en tant qu’espace intangible mais qui pourtant possède des répercutions sur le vivant, sur la planète, sur la biodiversité… sur des espaces tangibles. Nombreux sont les articles qui disent que le numérique, Internet et le web émettent des gaz à effets de serre et donc que toute cette immatérialité (apparente) contribue à détruire notre environnement.

It was acquired by NewsGator, who also launched an iOS version along the way, then by the folks at Black Pixel who ultimately decided to shut ...

Doppi — A Great Offline Music App for iPhone One of my biggest annoyances with iOS is just how terrible the stock music app has become over the last few years. It was fine and bearable before the launch of Apple Music, but the state of the app for offline music playback has become dismal after Apple shoved Apple Music functionality into it. If you are more of a streaming listener and use Apple Music, things today are much better for you. I still buy a lot of music on iTunes, apart from having a ton of existing music sourced from Bandcamp and other digital storefronts and the stock ...
