Date and Time: 
Thursday, October 20, 2016 -
08:00 to 17:00

Trainers: Erin Holloway & Clayton Dewey, Aten Design Group

Do you find that you're building a site around your organization's departments instead of your end users? If not your organization, then with your clients?

We’ll run you through a process for working with key stakeholders to create a website that focuses on end users while keeping the goals of the organization in mind. You'll learn how to approach your projects with the fundamentals of user experience & design through this all day course. We’ll introduce you to a few tools and techniques we use with our clients at Aten for finding the right tone and content balance, ultimately creating a successful web experience.

In this hands-on training, we’ll walk through the first part of Aten’s strategy and design process to give you ideas for expanding your strategy and design toolkit. You’ll learn how to create the tools and format the exercises to run stakeholder workshops where each step builds on the previous one and helps you create a successful web experience.
