  • Emanuel Blagonic: Users First

    WordCamp Milano 2017Speaker: Emanuel Blagonic

    February 27, 2018 — In this talk I will cover most frequent mistakes both clients and designers make in their quest to design visually appealing websites. But, where is the barrier between visual and functional? How to focus on users instead of building a good–looking website/or/application that users will hate to use? And how to say no to clients “overthinking” the user interface?

  • Amy Kvistad: Website and UX Design – From a Designer’s Perspective

    WordCamp Portland ME 2017Speaker: Amy Kvistad

    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.

  • Tracy Apps: Designers != Pixel Pushers

    WordCamp Ann Arbor 2016Speaker: Tracy Apps

    January 7, 2017 — Who needs designers anymore… right? Well, everyone, actually.

    Designing for interactive media is much more than pushing pixels into place. There’s so many more dimensions to good design, and some amazing tools to help us successfully solve these greater problem solving challenges. Designers, developers, project managers and even content creators all play a role in this process, so lets look at how design has “grown up” and become so beautifully complex, yet exponentially more exciting than it ever has before.

    August 15, 2016 — Developers and designers work together on a daily basis to bring custom WordPress builds to life, but sometimes the process can be a bumpy ride! Designers and developers both approach a site design and build from very different angles and this can cause issues. I’ll draw on my own experience of the good, the bad and the ugly to outline some ways that designers and developers can adapt their workflows to work more effectively together.

  • Sonja Leix: My friend the Impostor Syndrome

    WordCamp Europe 2016Speaker: Sonja Leix

    July 3, 2016 — Have you ever compared yourself to other designers / developers and felt like you’re not in their league?

    Do you write code, but wouldn’t dare to call yourself a developer?

    Do you shy away from contributing or publishing your code / designs / projects openly, because you’re worried you’re not good enough?

    At WordCamps, are you afraid to ask “stupid” questions or admit if you don’t understand something?


    Congrats, you’re suffering from Impostor Syndrome.

    Most of us do, but not many talk about it!

    I’d like to share my struggles with it and how I’m overcoming it. And so can you!

  • G. Crofte and M. Bousendorfer: Réconcilier les développeurs avec les designers autour d’un thème WP

    WordCamp Paris 2016Speakers: Geoffrey Crofte, Matthieu Bousendorfer

    April 10, 2016 — Qui ne s’est jamais retrouvé devant une maquette graphique qui proposait certains composants plutôt difficiles à réaliser avec WordPress, notamment à cause d’une « limitation technique » ? (quelle soit liée à l’outil ou aux connaissances du développeur)

    La connaissance technique d’un outil permet au développeur comme au designer de proposer des maquettes graphiques proches du rendu final. C’est une expérience de projet qui permet d’éviter les frustrations aussi bien auprès du client qu’au sein même d’une équipe.

    Pour optimiser ces connaissances, il est important d’utiliser les bons outils afin que designers et développeurs échangent et interagissent sans limites (ou presque) pendant la réalisation des maquettes, mais également en phase de recette interne, après le développement.

    Nous essayerons en 20 minutes d’apporter notre expérience en agence Web (Alsacréations) mais également au sein d’une startup qui développe des produits de service (WP Media) tout en proposant des outils adaptés.

    WordCamp NYC 2015Speaker: Lauren Pittenger

    December 17, 2015 — Do you walk the line between designer and developer? Are you more comfortable using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and find the black screen that is the command line a bit intimidating? This session will look at some of the basic commands needed to get comfortable using the command line. Though designers may need the command line for little more than version control or compiling SASS, having a basic understanding of the command line can help speed up your workflow.
