Description

Our guest for episode #33 is Jeremy Fields, Front End Development Director at Viget, a design agency dedicated to building a better digital world.





Jeremy and I talk about:





  • How the fast-paced world of web design isn’t really so fast-paced.
  • Why and how he set about instilling accessibility in design into Viget’s company culture
  • The tradeoffs involved in balancing good design with accessibility (spoiler: there don’t have to be many, if any)
  • Why accessibility should be taken into account even when it’s not specifically required or requested by the client
  • The common design/front end function whose demise Jeremy most looks forward to
