Whitney Quesenbery Co-Director, Center for Civic Design @whitneyq In her new book, A Web for Everyone: Designing Accessible User Experiences, Whitney Quesenbery (and co-author Sarah Horton) show how a web for everyone means applying all of our design skills to include people with a broader range of capabilities. She’s also passionate about civic design and the power of UX in democracy. Whitney has worked with election officials on usability and design of ballots and other election materials. She is a co-author of two influential Brennan Center reports that show just how much design matters in elections. She runs the Center for Civic Design with Dana Chisnell. Before she was seduced by a little beige computer into UX research, Whitney was a theatrical lighting designer on and off Broadway, learning about storytelling from some of the masters.
