10 Ways to Improve your Website’s User Experience

There has been a huge push to improve website user experience (UX) in the past few years, and with good reason. Bad UX can cause clients headaches with frustrated customers tying up their phone lines or simply giving up on their site and going to a competitor. Good UX, on the other hand, can pay off in many ways including word-of-mouth advertising, sharing on social media and repeat customers. Many decisions you make as the site designer can impact UX for better or worse even before opening Photoshop or touching a line of HTML. Learn ways you can approach your web design projects from the user’s perspective and what they’re looking for.  Join us on Oct 8, 2013 for this Homegrown Lunch and Learn where web designer and front-end developer Shannon Mølhave will give you 10 concrete ways to make your websites easier to use and satisfy your clients.

Shannon Mølhave is a web designer and front-end developer who is passionate about creating positive user experiences across all digital platforms.

Originally from Michigan, Shannon earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree with a major in Graphic Design from the University of Michigan in 2003.

To combat the problems with the typical job hunt process, Woody Holliman has resorted to sneakier means of getting in front of people. These guerrilla tactics may be unconventional but they are more satisfactory than the standard approach because these strategies allow you to arrange dozens of interviews with agencies you want to work for, and you are typically only competing with two to three other applicants.

I could go on and on about Skillshare, but the real point is because of my AIGA membership I was able to utilize another resource to make me a well round creative person.

Letterpress and screen printing have been going through a renaissance, a movement that is clearly evident in Durham, North Carolina. In a world where digital work is easily accessed and distributed, it’s nice to see custom printing making a comeback with local artists and designers. Our November Homegrown highlighted four of those local artists.
