This month we had 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 talked 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.
