About the UX Content Collective
Our mission is to ensure that UX writers & content designers are trained to create wildly successful and simple to use apps.
Content designers and UX writers help people do important work
Whether you call it user experience writing, content design, or UX content strategy, it requires so much more than slapping clever copy on a web page. People depend on software and apps to accomplish critical tasks—both professional and personal. Poor content design and bad writing get in the way of success for companies and users. Conversely, good writing sells more product for companies and makes the experience worthwhile and satisfying for users.
Because good writing leads to product success, demand for 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.
