*Get Unblocked*

Full-day workshop with Denise Jacobs

As creatives, what we need is a way to work better so that we can create more, right? Through exploring various concepts and approaches, including the neuroscience of creativity, productivity techniques, and emerging practices that spur innovation, we’ll discover not only the ways in which our brains work best, but also what’s behind the times when we feel on fire with creativity and when we feel creatively blocked. We’ll translate this information into processes and techniques for dramatically enhanced creative productivity on both an individual level. Beware: this workshop challenges the standard norms around concentration, focus, productivity, and may change how you work…for the better.

*Responsive Design Workflow*

Full-day workshop with Stephen Hay

Forget fixed-width Photoshop comps and overproduced wireframes. Yesterday's web design deliverables fail to take into account the demands of responsive solutions. Design workflow hasn't really changed, but best practices have.

This workshop is geared toward designers who aren't afraid of stepping out of their comfort zone. You should at least know some HTML and CSS. Designers who know some code and front-end developers who are heavily involved in design: this workshop's for you. If you've read (and enjoyed) the book Responsive Design Workflow, you will probably enjoy the workshop. That said, anyone interested in the subjects covered is welcome, and the more technical aspects of the subject matter will be demonstrated clearly.

*An Introduction to Content Strategy*

Full-day workshop with Memi Beltrame

This workshop is all about exploration and will help you get started if you are new to content strategy: What is content strategy about and what are its core activities. We will have an in depth look at all the fields of the discipline and the various reference points like prominent strategists, books and resources.

For our first big activity we will talk about content models. What are they and how do they help to clarify the requirements of what users have to be able to do in respect to content. How do content models support the design and implementation process?

Participants will learn how to create content models and how to use them for user research. We will also deep dive into one of the core activities of content strategists: content Audits. The first part will be about what content audits are, how customers can benefit from them and established best practices.
