Description

We are back from an extended summer break! Join us as we talk the creative industry, design and accessibility.

Come join us for these two incredible talks, a few drinks and a slice of pizza!



Siôn Rees

What I've Learned So Far From The Creative Industry

Siôn will be talking us through what he's learned about the creative industry. He is a multi-discipline designer from Swansea and currently works at Pentagon Design where he specialises in branding, web design, print design and video editing.

“It will take me a few seconds to draw it, but it’s taken me years to learn how to draw it in a few seconds.”



Mal Cansdale

Accessibility and Design: An Accidental Journey

A brief journey through the Barod CIC story, to how we find ourselves designers and content testers. We are a diverse team of people who started producing Easy Read info and now work alongside clients and excluded groups to test and develop accessible info.

The talk will cover:

  • Some of the accessible information products we have developed and the processes we use to produce them

  • The importance of working with the audience

  • New products and ideas

  • Coproduction and coworking

  • Content – jargon busting and our approach to content design testing

  • Where does accessible information and design go next?

About Mal:

Mal is a founder member of Barod CIC a cooperative of disabled and non-disabled people. Mal’s background is in developing and facilitating user led organisations. Mal has been producing accessible and Easy Read information for more than 20 years.



The event will be held at the ALEX Building, Swansea College of Art, UWTSD on Alexandra Road.
