Eric Reiss on Writing for Interactive Media :: Sunday, October 14, 2012

REGISTER HERE: http://ericreisswriting.eventbrite.com/

Eric Reiss, the celebrated author three books, including the recently published Usable Usability: Simple Steps for Making Stuff Better -- now available on Amazon. Eric is a world-renowned expert on writing for interactive media. Eric will show you how to create findable, scanable, skimable, and readable on-line content. This is the stuff that creates understanding, builds trust, and increases conversion rates.

Topics include:

Why writing for interactive media is different (basic observations and hard facts)

Navigation (labels, not graphics)

Shared-reference building (getting folks on the same mental page)

Descriptions (core content)

Contextual navigation (locally relevant links)

Convenience text (alt texts, pop-ups, FAQs, and instructions)

Information Architecture (from a content-provider point-of-view)

Metadata (machine-readable keywords, titles, and descriptions).

Eric Reiss has been meddling with service- and product-design projects for longer than he cares to remember. Today, he is CEO of The FatDUX Group, an international user-experience design company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Eric has also lectured on design principles at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, is a former Professor of Usability and Design at the IE Business School in Madrid, and serves on the advisory boards of several universities and institutes in both Europe and the United States. His Web Dogma, a design philosophy that transcends both fashion and technology, has been adopted by 1000s of developers and companies around the world.

This workshop will have a limited number of attendees so be sure to RSVP now.

We would like to thank our venue sponsor, NextSpace, for their generous donation of the venue space.

    This was a very enjoyable, comprehensive and pragmatic overview of the specific and sometimes counter-intuitive art of writing for interactive media. It was great to see writing for the web put in a broader context and a breath of fresh air to see examples that were not US-centric. Eric is a captivating speaker and made a 4 hour session packed full of information fly by. Glad I dragged myself out of bed! Thanks Eric!
