World Usability Day offers user experience professionals a single day each year to celebrate usable design. John Hockenberry, this year’s chair, recently told us that “the opposite of usable design is useless design”. The world is already filled with useless design. World Usability Day is on November 11, 2010.
DFW-UPA was selected as a Partner Event for World Usability Day. Kevin Schumacher, a local designer in the Dallas area, created six different t-shirt designs that we will use at our partner event. Kevin took this year’s theme of Communication and looked at it from several different perspectives.
Feel free to use these designs. Enjoy!
Design 1: A Kid’s Communication Toy
Here is a playful design that celebrate a communication toy that kids have built for many years.
Design 2: Megaphone: Make Your Voice Loud
Think sports fan, police, band leader, cheerleader, and so on. Here is a design to make your voice loud.
Design 3: Silhouette
Your inner nerd gets an extreme makeover with this silhourtte t-shirt design.
Design 4: Braille
This design spells out the word “Communication” in Braille above World Usability Day 2010.
Design 5: Sign Language
Like the Braille t-shirt, shis design spells out the word “Communication” in sign language above World Usability Day 2010.
Design 6: Multiple Languages
After meeting some designers, Kevin decided to combine the Braille and Sign Language t-shirt designs. He added Morse code, too. In all cases, the word is “Communication” — the WUD 2010 theme.
