    February 20, 2020 — Las decisiones que tomemos en cuanto a la tipografía de nuestra web van a afectar —positiva o negativamente— a la tasa de conversión y a los beneficios que obtengamos.

    Veremos ejemplos de percepciones que se suelen asociar a los tipos de letra más conocidos, los factores que tenemos que tener en cuenta al seleccionar una tipografía, cómo combinar tipografías, y qué son las fuentes variables, entre otros temas.

    WordCamp Seattle 2018Speaker: Justin Nealey

    December 30, 2019 — As a fellow WordPress designer, I know how much time it takes to work with a client and get a website created. It can feel like an eternity with the initial consult, getting the pieces together, creating the rough draft to their requirements, presenting the rough draft, going back and forth with updates, and so on.

    While there’s no cure to make all of this automated, there is a way to shave countless hours and throw remedial tasks out the window. In this talk, I’ll go over my approach to streamline the WordPress design process allowing you to be more efficient, build sites quicker, and even handle more clients.

  • Davide Casali: Remote Design: The Async Advantage

    Davide Casali: Remote Design: The Async Advantage

    WordCamp Milano 2017Speaker: Davide Casali

    October 21, 2019 — Working remotely has many benefits but also some obvious and non-obvious challenges. Discussions about remote work also often tend to be generic, however each discipline require its own kind of variations, and design isn’t different.

    A lot of the tools available to designers are meant to be used in person, but what if we happen to work remotely, or we want to switch a product team to being remote? How to build trust, gather feedback and craft a unified vision? This talk takes inspiration from some of the practices of Automattic’s teams to overcome some of the unique challenges of remote working.

    These solutions will also be beneficial to any designer that desires to engage with open source projects, as they are by definition remote.
