SmashingConf Antwerp

SmashingConf Antwerp is a brand new conference on design & UX by Smashing Magazine. For designers and UI engineers who love the web. On design systems, usability, product design and complex UI challenges. Boost your design skills, the smashing way.

SmashingConf is a friendly, inclusive event which is focused on real-world problems and solutions. 2 days, 1 track, 14 speakers, 300–400 attendees and a handful of hands-on workshops. Their speakers rarely show slides: they show how they work — their setup, techniques and shortcuts for getting work done in live interactive sessions. So expect everything from collaborative Figma projects to “this-is-how-we-work”-sessions, live. SmashingConfs are focused on front-end and UX, but they cover everything web, be it interface design or accessibility. That means a packed bundle of diverse, actionable insights for your work. On the day before and after the conference, Oct 9 and Oct 12, SmashingConf will host full-day workshops. You can save €100 by getting a conference + workshop ticket.

Workshops at SmashingConf Antwerp

Designing For Complex UI with Vitaly Friedman
9 Oct 2023 - 9 Oct 2023
Not much can surprise us when it comes to interface challenges. We can design a decent card, a well-rounded accordion, an accessible modal and an exquisite hamburger navigation. But what if there are slightly more complex UX challenges ahead of us?

Accessibility for Designers with Stéphanie Walter
12 Oct 2023 - 12 Oct 2023
In the early stages of product development, accessibility considerations are frequently ignored. Accessibility is mistakenly considered a problem to be resolved down the line, often put on the shoulder of the development team. But accessibility is the responsibility of the whole team. Including designers. And a lot of accessibility issues can be already foreseen and prevented during the design phase. As designers, you hold the power to shape product roadmaps by including accessibility best practices in your designs and advocating for accessibility features. This practical workshop is designed to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills to design products that are accessible and user-friendly.

Design KPIs Workshop, with Vitaly Friedman
12 Oct 2023 - 12 Oct 2023
How do we measure design quality? What metrics can we rely on? How to bridge business objectives and UX goals? How exactly to remove bias and guesswork from our design decisions? And how do we make a case for the impact of our UX work? Well, let’s figure it out — in the upcoming brand-new Design KPIs workshop.
