Stop Making Things Pretty and Start Designing

Michelle Schulp (@marktimemedia) of Marktime Media will join us for April's meetup.  Michelle is a web and print designer and WordPress aficionado. She is fascinated with the problem solving aspect of design and how to improve not only the look of your website, but also it's performance.

Design is not just about themes, graphics, or the look-and-feel of a website. We will discuss "design thinking" as a problem solving strategy, including why the most beautiful sites are not always the most successful. We will end with some ways for you to start applying "design thinking" principles to your own projects.

----------

Thank you to Sultan Solutions, who will be providing food and beverages for this month's meetup.

    The link to the slides didn't have the http so it wasn't clickable. Here it is so everyone can click it:

    Any specific topics you all want to hear covered? I'm working on extending my talk and would love input! No guarantees, but nice to get a sample of what people are looking for.

    I am always looking for a WP person who wants to create seo friendly, and ranking sites. I have the tools and the training to get them ranked but am still a fumbly-fob at the set-up. Hope to learn from some obvious experts on how to escape the tech block I struggle with
