Designing for Stress Cases: Understanding the Everyday Relationship Between UX and Accessibility

The world we design for is increasingly complex and diverse, demanding considerations for user accessibility and real-world contexts. We often project the user as a mirror image of ourselves, making the mistake of imagining the best-case scenario—that users are calm, happy, and want to use the product. But this assumption is often false. In this talk, designers Anthony D Paul and Kelly Driver from idfive look at the role of stress cases, or common pain points, in user experience design, and share methods of building empathy between creatives and decision-makers in order to elevate product experiences for all.
