Helping content meet design - Confab 2019

Ah, the web-design causality dilemma: The content provider won’t start without a design, and the designer won’t start without content. When only one side is set up to win, everybody loses—especially the end user.

It’s high time we addressed this chicken-and-egg problem through evolution: collaborative content design is here. By starting with a shared understanding of the work, and a willingness to meet in the middle with just enough content and just enough design, you too can break the cycle and create better, smarter web products—faster.
