Okay, so the original title was supposed to be “Malcontent        Strategy: where UX at?” Sorry about that.
I am not a content strategist. This seemed important  to mention, as most people in the audience were.

Time To Change commissioned Stephen Collins   to create these cartoons (among others).

TTC already had a strategy and website in place for adults.But young people’s needs are different, maybe more complex.
So we were designing a digital strategy and acontent strategy at the same time. Eh, we like a challenge ;)
Thank you to all the young people who spoke to us. They were   generous with their time and insights — and brave, too.
However, despite wanting to support the campaign, many were concerned about how their support would be interpreted.
And despite being very sympathetic towards celebrity mental health stories, a lot of young people found it hard to relate.
We used all these little insights to develop personas …
… thirteen personas is a lot, but we weretrying to address the needs of all young people.
By now we had 60something pages of research and insight, so I started looking for ways of making it more apprehendable.
Eventually I found a way of mapping the campaign space that    seemed to make sense: knowledge vs. engagement.
We mapped all the personas onto the space, with the aim of helping young people travel upwards and to the right …
… and that became our content framework.
This helped us identify content requirements to help young        people move in the direction of advocacy…
… and helped us identify young people who might reject the campaign, and develop sharable content for their peers.
We were thrilled that the client loved our workand found the map (content framework) so useful.
Thanks for reading! I’m always happy to chat about this work, so please do say hi —         I’m @finiteattention on Twitter...
