  5. 5. Content Design  Content Design is a term related with Content Thinking. It can be described as a framework for communication design, where the content is a message with a clear meaning (i.e. content) which fulfills the original purpose of a particular enterprise.
  6. 6. Content Thinking  Content Thinking is a response to the information overload. It is a practical approach to communication design, which shifts emphasis from the media to the core intent i.e. the meaning of the message. The central idea of Content Thinking is: The meaning (i.e. content) is the message.
  7. 7. What is Content? There are a lot of different definitions of content out there, so it’s important to explain what we mean when we say content.  Many people think that content is just about writing blog posts or articles, but really the written word is just one type of content. Content is so much more. 
  8. 8. Content can also be:  Images  Videos  Podcasts  And more The purpose of content is to convey information. That information can be either informative or entertaining, or both.
  9. 9. Web content  Web content can be as simple as a single home page to sell a product, or as complex as an online magazine complete complete with a user forum.  Like good web design, good content strategy requires lots of planning. That’s why it’s important to coordinate the web design and content plan for a site
  10. 10. Designer/Content Strategist Relationship A strong relationship between a designer and the person responsible for content leads to more effective content, which is a good thing for everyone involved. A Content designer creates a place where content can be shared effectively. Without good content design, content is unlikely to get noticed–no matter how valuable or interesting it is.
  11. 11. Why Work Together? To create the most effective website for their clients, designers and content strategists need to know much of the same information.  The best way to make sure that the content design and content strategy complement each other rather than clash with each other is for the content strategist and content designer to communicate regularly.
  12. 12. Working Content into Your Process
  13. 13. The design process and content strategy can be integrated to create a more effective user experience. With a little planning, content strategy can easily become a part of your design process. You can begin to incorporate content into your design process by:
  14. 14. Planning for content early in the process. Don’t wait until the last minute to think about content strategy. If your client doesn’t explain what type of content they plan to include on their site, ask them. Collaborating with an expert. Design requires a specific skill set. So does content creation and management. While some designers have both skill sets, many do not. Don’t be afraid to reach out to and work with a content creation specialist. Communicating with the content specialist regularly. Communication is an important part of the design process. Just as it’s important to communicate changes to your client, it’s also important to communicate change to your content specialist. ******
