Content Strategists as Connectors: Connecting the Entire Web Process

Presented by

Corey Vilhauer, Director of Strategy at Blend Interactive

About this talk

Consider this a call to multidisciplinary action: Content strategists are the glue that holds a web project together. They are the ones who touch every part of a project, from discovery to development and beyond. And that means they need to understand not just words, but the systems and processes we build around those words.  Join Corey Vilhauer, Director of Strategy at Blend Interactive, as he takes a look at how you can be not just a good content strategist, but a good web strategist — helping craft your work in a way that helps research, design, development, and ongoing support — all while learning a bit about your work in the process.  In this talk, you’ll learn:  1) How content strategy ultimately affects stages further down the project timeline—design, development, support  2) What you need to know about the different disciplines to make their—and your! —job easier  3) How content strategy fits into the larger ecosystem of a web design or development project  4) How content and governance form the backbone of the entire web experience    About the Presenter Corey Vilhauer is Director of Strategy at Blend Interactive, where he is responsible for leading the strategic design process with a focus on content strategy and information architecture. Corey is co-author of The Web Project Guide: From Spark to Launch and Beyond, an overview of the web process from ideation to post-launch governance, and co-host of a podcast by the same name.
