with Maria Giudice
While user-experience architects lay the blueprint and groundwork on how users will navigate through the site, designers are responsible for the site's emotional experience by providing powerful content and compelling visual design. Before designers can move into Photoshop to create comps, it is imperative to work with clients to create a strategy on which design can be measured and evaluated. Learn how to conduct an effective design strategy workshop and other best practice techniques for visual designers. Learn the basics on setting up an effective content strategy framework.
