As we heard in our 20x20 Night event, many of us approach UX Content Design through a different lens (UX writing, content strategy, content design). Let's continue the great conversations we started at our inaugural meetup with a reflective, thought-provoking panel discussion.
We'll dig into the state of UX Content Design today—who's involved, what it entails, and why our work is so important. Then, we'll share predictions about where it's all going as we head into 2019.
Bring your questions—this is sure to be a lively conversation!
6:30-7:00: Mix & mingle with snacks & drinks
