All to often, content becomes an afterthought in design work. We end up duplicating it, use it to fill in empty boxes, not adapting it to all its audiences, getting it stuck, and let it keep people out of our services. How can rethinking our approach to content make our work/design/products more empathetic, sustainable, and available? In this talk, Lauren will show how structured content unlocks empathy and offer some practical ways to work with content as data.
