Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

In this session we will showcase how to create user-facing interface from scratch using graphical user interface (GUI) elements documented in the living style guide. We will draw two real and live examples from Wikipedia and a third example from the crowd of attendees.[1] By the end of this session, you will be familiar with how the living style guide can serve you in the next gadget or extension that you build for a wide range of users. The result is an inviting and usable interface that takes high considerations of accessibility standards.

Designing an interface that takes consideration of a wide array of disabilities and impairments is not an easy task but an exciting challenge for us. With that, we will also speak about the continued work on the living style guide, especially on how it can better take the mystery out of designing an interface for developers, designers, and anyone involved with designing user-facing interface.

[1] If you have a third suggestion on the example interface for us to demo in this session, kindly type the suggestion next to your signature below.
