Writer, Educator, and Coauthor of Nicely Said

We all know that words mean things, but how often do we take the time to consider the language in our design systems? In this workshop, we’ll look at how strings, labels, forms, and flows shape the user experience.

We’ll talk about real-world examples, define writing principles for your team, and work through several activities you can use with your clients and colleagues.


You'll learn how to:
  • Keep apps and websites focused with clear, useful interface writing (i.e., form fields, navigation labels, prompts, onboarding, instructions)
  • Take international readers, character limits, and house style into account as you write
  • Guide readers through multipart interfaces and reduce drop-off within a flow
  • Develop copy variations for prototypes and user testing
  • Adapt your tone to fit the reader’s needs and situation

Schedule
  • Networking & Breakfast (8:30–9:00am)
  • Workshop (9:00–12pm)
