5 Ways Design Can Make Your Newsroom Better

  • Thursday - 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Constellation Ballroom II
  • #ONA15design

This goes well beyond what things look like, such as an information graphic or the interface of a news app. Design encompasses how we experience everything, the invisible glue that connects us to humanity. We’ll separate what’s useful from what’s hype, and connect it back to newsroom needs. We’ll show how design goes much deeper than aesthetics, pulling inspiring lessons from many places, including anthropology or video games.
