Start the new decade off right by joining us at the first official Refresh Chicago meetup. We plan to have two presentations, off-the-cuff website critiques, refreshments, and great conversation with like-minded individuals.
Writing for the Web: The Right Strategy
presented by Shay Howe
All too often content is overlooked when designing and building a website. The problem is that users rarely come for the design or experience — they come for the content! Shay Howe will talk about developing the right strategy for web writing, the qualities of great web content, and how to bring that content to life with design.
Your Browser is the New Photoshop
presented by Matt Puchlerz and Jon Buda
Do you spend your days in Photoshop creating comp after comp, all the while wishing for a more efficient means with which to design? The streamlined application of your dreams is now here, and its called a browser. The ever-extending capabilities of CSS now rival those of Photoshop, with designing in the browser quickly becoming the norm. Matt Puchlerz and Jon Buda will show you why web design and front-end development are inextricably linked, and how in-browser design using advanced CSS techniques foster that concept.
