Gone are the days when designers could hide in a corner and avoid writing work altogether.

Digital designers, in particular, are increasingly being called on to get involved in every aspect of the creative workflow. As a result, understanding how to write proficiently within a design environment has become an essential skill and a great service differentiator.

In this course, you’ll learn to release your inner wordsmith while leveraging your UX/UI environments to communicate clearly, purposefully and with maximum impact. This streamlined workflow not only gives you complete control over your creative message, it also reduces conflicts at later project stages.

By learning to prepare, compose and edit your own copy, you can become the kind of multi-skilled professional the design industry is desperate for. Write for design, write for success!

In this course you will learn the following skills:

Preparation | Articulate Requirements | Gather inputs | Generate ideas

Composition | ACB Lenses | The Rough-In | Writing with speed

Editing | Version Control | Editing Lenses | Self-Editing Techniques

Finishing | Future Systems | Copy Approval | Finish Work

Facts, Figures and FAQ.
