Lunch and Learn - Principles of Accessible Design with Lib from Adlib Creative
With over 1 billion people globally with a disability, it's important that your brand is producing content on social media, in blogs, podcasts etc. that are accessible to your audience no matter what their needs are.
Accessible design is about bridging aesthetics with function to make information more accessible to those with disabilities by using colours, fonts, layouts, etc. that are helpful for your clients with cognitive or mental disabilities like Dyslexia, ADHD, Colour blindness etc. This workshop is developed to help non-designers create accessible content for marketing to help your business reach a wider audience.

- Difference between accessible and non-accessible content
- 7 key elements to accessible design
Using Lib’s mini e-book “The Principles of Accessible Design”, Lib will walk you through how to apply these principles to your marketing content using Canva and other free to low-cost resources. By the end of the session, you will have a sound understanding of the small adjustments you as a small business owner can make to ensure your content is enjoyed by everyone.
This workshop is perfect for non-designers, small business owners and designers wanting to know more about accessibility.
