Designing like a writer: how language can elevate your work

The way it looks and the way it reads: these are two halves of a whole. As a designer, you’ve likely spent a lot of time thinking about layout, presentation, and interaction. In this talk, we’re going to cover the other half.

He looked at how storytelling, prose, and a conversational approach to design can elevate your work as a whole.

The audience left with a few content-first tactics for solving design problems — whether they work with a UX writer or pen product copy themselves – but also a greater appreciation for how language determines the way our work feels and functions.
