This week our topic is: Content Design and Prototyping
When: Thursday 18th July at 4pm BST / 11am ET / 8am PT /5pm CEST
Where: On Twitter via the hashtag #uxchat co-hosted by BetterUX
Our esteemed host is: Jonti Eccles, Content Manager and Designer
Jonti is a content designer and content manager with experience delivering content across diverse sectors including charities, scientific research organisations, international development advocacy and care services. He loves working with clients to get the best out of their content for their site users, especially when dovetailing with UX researchers, designers and developers across whole projects. He’s a wordy nerd at heart but also loves trekking through the hills of the British countryside, art in all its forms and exploring new towns, cities and (warmer!) coastlines. He once entered a televised baking competition by mistake.

This week, Jonti and our UX community discussed the following points, which you can read through in the embedded Twitter Moment below.
- More often than not, we define the layout and elements in a design and then plug in the content later. Should we start rethinking our design process with a ‘content-first’ approach?
- What techniques can we use for prototyping content and with content?
- Designers and Content Managers have similar aims – meeting user needs – how can we most effectively improve design and content processes? How do we overcome barriers?
