Welcome UX writers and UX designers with a penchant for words. The best way someone had described UX writing to me is "less copywriting for apps, more designing with words."
This meetup is for anyone who believes that the words are as much a part of design as it is the interface. Let's share our career trajectory that landed us into UX writing. Let's collaborate on projects and build our portfolios. Let's learn from each other and help shape this amazing discipline called UX writing.
Having a portfolio is increasingly important in finding a job as a UX writer. In this session, aside from meeting your fellow UX writes, you'll learn:
- Examples of what to put in a portfolio
- Brainstorming your past work experience for UX writing examples
- Practices of keeping an updated portfolio
- How/where to build your portfolio
UX writers are an important part of the design team. By learning how to use design tools, specifically prototyping software like Sketch and InVision, we put ourselves in a much better position to work seamlessly with UX designers.
In this session, you'll learn:
- Understanding the design process and where UX writers come in
- Why you need to learn prototyping
- Pros and cons Sketch and Invision (and other tools out there)
- Best ways to learn these tools
