Content design?

Content designers, UX Writers, Content Strategists... we don’t exactly help ourselves.

Sarah Winters put it best.
“It’s about using data and evidence to give the audience what they need, at the time they need it and in a way they expect.”

Things I look for in a team

Inclusive and welcoming
Diverse teams build more inclusive and accessible products
Research-first and ambitious
Discovery before definition, not as a rubber stamp at the end
Collaborative and curious
Embrace the blurry spaces between the design disciplines
Creative and responsible
Ideation and play is an unmissable part of the design process
Accountable and kind
Clear on issues, kind on people
