June 2, 2017 — Website design and UX principles applied to WordPress websites – from a designer’s perspective. The process starts with discovering client objectives and the website audience. This informs decisions on colors, fonts, and layout. A mood board helps to communicate the design direction for the website and user research informs decisions on website navigation and content hierarchy. Tools of the trade include color, stock photo and icon resources. Implementing these design discoveries into your WordPress website is not as hard as you think.

Our objectives as UX practitioners, as designers, as developers, as product owners etc are the same – to build the best possible thing in the time we have and within budget. The difficulties that surround projects are often much more to do with communication and process than they are about the differences between the disciplines. As well as adding weight and dimension to UX discovery, thinking about what we are building as separate and connected objects, and particularly the exercise that I share in this session, can be really helpful in building a foundation for better communication and collaboration across team, discipline and organisation(s).
