Should we consider content a part of design or does lumping content in with design do it a disservice? In this talk, we’ll tour content at three depths. We’ll begin with an intro to content, content strategy, and adjacent disciplines like UX writing. Next, we’ll discuss how content and design currently shape user experiences. And finally, we’ll go deep and explore abstraction, alternatives to design thinking, and whether a new model for UX-type work might yield better results. -About the Speaker- Tim Sandfort is an independent content strategist in Austin, Texas. He serves on Austin UXPA’s Board as a Director of Events & Programming and is a co-organizer of the Austin Content Meetup.

Hello, my HAPPY readers, I am excited to announce our next UXPA book club read - Heart of UX: the Way of the Connected Researcher by Jessica Steinbomer and Jon-Eric Steinbomer. Meetup date for Wednesday, September 9th, 6:00 - 7:30 pm The shipping takes about 2 weeks so order ASAP! We will read pages 17-72 This book, while aimed at the Researcher, is valuable for everyone involved in UX Design and Development. Paraphrased from the back cover: The Heart of UX guides the researcher and their design/development team into deeper states of connection. They illustrate best practices in UX research, co-mingled with relevant instruction in neuroscience, psychology, and physics. The blend of instruction and insight leads to a fuller awareness of “self”, in order to develop technologies that serve Humanity. Knowing and owning the linked intricacies of these elements helps you become a Connected Researcher and team: those who move with passion and fluidity, sprinkled with grace. The Heart of UX guides you to: • Clarified vision and creativity for designing better products • Increased connections with: Co-workers, Study participants, and Client teams • Greater sense of wholeness as a person • A way to connect to your work and world more deeply • Specific and reliable tools for empathy • Self-care and boundaries To order the book go to: www.Heartofux.com Top Right PRODUCTS Click Image of Book I hope you will join us for our online discussion.
