Content is UX is design: crossing disciplines for fun and profit

A session at Content Strategy Forum 2011

Tuesday 6th September, 2011

9:50am to 10:10am (GMT)

We all want the same things. From research to concepts to IA, nomenclature, design and development, we all want to create the best user experience possible.

Content is a constant in the design continuum, and with the rise of increasingly agile and cross-disciplinary UX design teams, we have a unique chance to demonstrate content's core value to UX: it's flexibility, granularity and ability to engage directly with the user.

Elizabeth will share her experience working with a developer and UX architect to improve both process and product - a major financial website redesign. Using Topic Maps, they build an information model that steamlined and managed UX deliverables and the scope and production of content.

What you'll learn:
1. How to integrate collaboratively with a UX team.
2. Tools and methods UX designers use relevant to content strategy and production.
3. How to use topic maps to develop and design the structure of large, complex websites.
