- Writing Content for UX
Don't miss out on the last UXPA event of the season! You probably haven’t heard of microcopy, but chances are you interact with it every day! It’s the text supporting the user experience, like buttons, 404 messages, meta data, etc. These micro interaction points on a site are just a piece of what UX Writers specialize in creating — for websites, apps, games, and beyond. Because UX Writing is a relatively new discipline within user experience circles, it’s often an underutilized specialty. In this workshop, you’ll get a thorough introduction to UX writing, what it entails, and why it matters for your project. We’ll cover the basics of establishing an inspiring content strategy that informs information architecture. Then we’ll see how the simple addition of copy can turn your wireframes into more compelling prototypes. You’ll also learn how copy interacts with design to create seamless visual communication that encourages, supports, and delights users. You’ll leave with actionable tips and tricks you can immediately start implementing into your projects. Whether you’re a writer or not! ---- Thanks to our sponsor Dominion Enterprises, this event is free!!! *RSVP IS REQUIRED TO ENTER THE VENUE **Must be UXPA Norfolk member to attend.
