  • It seems that designers and developers speak different languages: developers are fluent in How, while designers are fluent in Why. Both are extremely important to a project, but this difference often leads to communication breakdowns. This talk will give developers insight into the design process, including vocabulary, problem solving methods, and workflow. Then, learn practical ways to apply it to create attractive sites (using good design principles and simple rules for success) and effective sites (through basic exercises that help you develop and showcase your primary call to action).


    This class will be offered on Thursday, February 2nd from 6pm to 8pm.


    Michelle is an independent graphic designer and frontend developer in Minneapolis. Before beginning her career, she studied Visual Communications, with minors in Psychology and Sociology. Together, this resulted in a love of How To Solve Problems. Lately she has been specializing in WordPress theme development and high-end presentations for her clients. She loves the open source community and speaks/volunteers/organizes at WordCamps and other events around the country.
