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.

In days of old, web content was built with table-based HTML. It was really unsightly. While advancements in website development has eliminated the table-based website. Hooray! Unfortunately, email design has not moved away from tables. And the number of browsers, email clients, and devices that newsletters are viewed on has grown. But that doesn’t mean that you are doomed to deliver unsightly email campaigns. In this month’s Homegrown, Newsletter Wizard Tim Rosenberg, of Quillor, showed us how to create better email newsletters.
