  • Relatable Relevant Appropriate Empathetic
  • People come to Pinterest not just to do things, but to feel things. Tiffani Jones Brown
  • Stop using marketing words and setting unrealistic expectations... Be genuine in your language and set real expectations. Steph Hay
  • We can take this even further.
  • Humanness turns data into content.
  • Mike Atherton, “Beyond the Polar Bear”
  • But we don’t always see this as “our job.”
  • {This is a true story.}
  • Make it look like Pinterest! You could filter results based on your horoscope! What if it customized content based on the weather? Those filters are just FPO. The developers will make it work. www.flickr.com/photos/crownsocial/6231232219

  • While also... 1. Using a simple, flexible grid layout system 2. Not manually laying out each day’s edition 3. Doing better than a PDF
  • Logic is like a robot style guide: Rules keep the results consistent.
  • What it takes: 1. Structure 2. Metadata 3. Rules 4. Transportation 5. Context
  • 1Structure
  • www.flickr.com/photos/tdd/4493216417 It’s hard to parse this.
  • www.flickr.com/photos/28478778@N05/5728474385/ This is much easier.
  • You need a structural model that matches your users’ mental model.
  • Does this content need to be: 1. Something you can search and sort by? 2. Related to other content? 3. Extracted to display elsewhere? 4. Reprioritized or resized for some destinations?
