Are you designing boxes to be filled up with content or are you creating usable designs for the content? Content is the whole point of the digital products you create. But many teams struggle with how to get content up front. Whatever your role, you need to worry about content – or work with someone who does. When we start with context and give structure to the content, we can create multiple windows into a world. Flip the process. Design structure first. Work in layers to make interface designs that help people make better sense of the information they need. This webinar will provide an introduction to a content-first design process that starts with content, not pixels. Come explore the intersection of information architecture, content strategy, design, and development to create a useful, usable, delightful user experience.
