Moving Beyond "Copy" & "Design" into Content-Driven UX Workflows and Tools
Content + Design Process = Painful?
Raise your hand if you've ever encountered a broken process or workflow SNAFU with content and design production? The world of web demands a fluid, yet adaptive harmony between multiple project teams and goals working in unison. When these teams fail to synergize, the creative process can be like a brick and mortar waterfall.
New strategies, design patterns, and technology continually spawn better opportunities to engage users; but occasionally it adds pressure on creative teams who need to outclass challenging, and sometimes frustrating workflow situations. Take, for example, the intricacies of knowing which design and content tools work well together, what workflows to use, and how all of those things can act as an integration conduit for creative teams and stakeholders.
