What we're about

Good content is necessary for good websites. They can't just be well-coded and well-designed — to be effective organizational tools, they need to be well-written and well-produced, as well.

If you're a content professional in the Seattle area, this group is for you. Join us if you're a content strategist or want to be, if you want to work with content strategists, or if you're just curious about the idea of content strategy.

Seattle has lots and lots of web professionals, and a small community of content strategists. Let's make the community bigger.

UX Super Meetup with Jared Spool

The Westin Seattle

We are partnering with ConveyUX for the Puget Sound UX Super Meetup ’20. This part of the ConveyUX conference is open to all. Pre-registration is required. Register at: https://conveyux.com/sessions/puget-sound-ux-super-meetup/ Sign up right away to guarantee your spot. Your registration includes one drink, and appetizers will be served. UX veteran and "Maker of Awesomeness" Jared Spool will present "Design is a Team Sport." There will also be plenty of time for networking and socializing. ============================================================ DETAILS ============================================================ TALK DESCRIPTION Every seasoned designer has fallen into the trap. They see the bad design in front of them. They can’t help but see how bad it is. And they want to redesign it. Show the world how it could be done. How it should be done. Well-intentioned as the desire to rid the world of this bad design is, their approach often is a disaster. It pushes their allies away, accidentally giving off the air of superiority filled with the smells of arrogance and contempt. An alternative is a well-designed process for creating your designs. The secret sauce in that well-designed process is a realization and inclusiveness of everyone on the team. It’s infused with an understanding of how people contribute to the design process, even when they aren’t trained in design skills. And it opens up opportunities to give everyone — not just your trained designers — the superpowers necessary to rid your products and services of bad design. This talk will inspire you and your team to: • Realize the reason everyone thinks they are a designer is they are a designer, however unskilled • Learn that our design processes need to be designed, with intention and thoughtfulness • Focus on helping every contributing influencer of your designs become a consciously competent designer themselves.
