Designing the Content Creation Experience

WordPress is being used in increasingly complex settings, powering everything from websites, to apps to content distribution services. As the need for complex workflows increases to support this range of use cases, it becomes more and more important to make sure that we are designing and building the right experience for content creators and editors. We’ll look at how the Press Association and 10up have taken a UX first approach to the challenges faced by the PA editorial team. We will show examples of UX research and design through to implementation of how 10up and PA tried to tackle some of the challenges of working with WordPress in a complex environment. This will not be a technical talk.

Presented by Gabe Karp. Gabe joins the 10up team from London where he brings more than 10 years of experience working with NGOs, major political campaigns and large corporate clients to design and develop digital platforms. He works closely with his clients to craft strategies and solutions, helping organisations achieve their goals by leveraging thoughtful, impactful design and the right technology solutions.
