On the web, every­thing looks the same. Let’s fix that. Instead of a first or last approach, let’s look at design and con­tent in tandem.

We’re going to walk you through a straight­for­ward design and con­tent approach that bites its thumb at bor­ing trends with­out com­pro­mis­ing the effec­tive­ness of your UIs. Learn the busi­ness case behind flex­i­ble con­tent and design sys­tems that you won’t need to sell to your clients. We’ll teach you great ways to source, gath­er, posi­tion, and improve your con­tent while giv­ing exam­ples of how design can cre­ate stronger micro­copy, edi­to­r­i­al mes­sag­ing, and calls to action. By the end of this talk, you’ll be dying to trade your Open Sans and cof­fee cup head­ers for some­thing a lit­tle bold­er. Pre­pare your mar­ket­ing team. They might not be ready for this.
