Writing is designing and Figma ain't that great

Episode 47: Writing is designing and Figma ain't that great

Tag along as guest Michael Metts and I talk about his book 'Writing is designing' as well as a bunch of other things, such as Figma for UX writers or why you sometimes just need to claim the 'content designer' title to move up the career ladder.

Learning outcomes:

  • How 'Writing is designing' came to be
  • Workshops on content design with Michael and Andy
  • Why Figma for writers is overrated
  • How you sometimes just need to claim that UX writing title!
