This month we have Jack Garfinkel from Scope, Lauren Tormey from University of Edinburgh, and Kelly Arnstein from University of Glasgow sharing insights and tips about how to make your content usable and effective.
Lauren will talk through what she wants UX designers to know about content design – from an introduction to the discipline, to how it differs from other content roles.
Jack will talk about how to get a job in content design. He’ll cover skills you can learn on your own, projects to build your portfolio and how to use social media.
Kelly will show how content design and UX intertwine, using a recent case study of web content at University of Glasgow.
We have limited places on Zoom so do book now (you don’t need a Zoom account to access this event).
