About UX Content Collective: UX Training by Industry Experts
Our advisory board of UX content leaders from top tech companies helped us to ensure the skills and topics covered in our certification courses matched hiring managers’ expectations.
Content designers and UX writers help people get important tasks done
Whether you call it user experience writing, content design, or UX content strategy, our work requires so much more than slapping clever copy on a web page. People depend on software and apps to accomplish critical tasks in their job and everyday lives. Thoughtful content improves the overall user experience and contributes to positive business outcomes. It’s a win, win.
Demand for qualified UX writers is growing exponentially. Companies need writers who can contribute to content-first designs, advocate for the end-user, understand data and content testing, and apply design best practices to their work.
That’s why we founded the UX Content Collective
We bring over 50 years of cumulative industry experience to life through online courses and training to arm future generations of UX writers, content strategists, and conversation designers with the knowledge they need to succeed.
Five years from now, we’d love to see a UX writer on every product design team. We’re on a mission to improve overall communication between users and computers for all interaction modes and device types. That’s where you come in.
Join the Collective and help us put users first!
