What’s more important for a successful website: content or design?

It’s a trick question, of course. In the end, content and design are inseparable in the user experience. And just as each design element should have a reason, the content that fills a site must also be created with a purpose.

Content strategy plans for the creation of content that meets the needs of your clients and site users. In the AIGA Homegrown Lunch & Learn session on June 11, Michael Gowan will discuss elements of content strategy, tips for creating meaningful content, and ways to plan for the life cycle of information on your sites.

Join us June 11 for our Homegrown on Content Matters with Michael Gowan.

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.

Long story short, the AIGA Raleigh Studio Tour was awesome. I’m always on a bit of design-high after any AIGA event. It’s so inspiring to learn from other designers in the community and know that we can all call AIGA “home”.
