Working Writer Lecture Series presents Jess Jones, UX Designer
March 2, 2020
The Working Writer Lecture Series, the Department of Writing & Linguistics’ lecture series, is pleased to host Jess Jones of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Jones will be presenting via WebEx at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 10. The lecture will be broadcast in Newton 1107 and Gamble 201.
As a UX leader with deep expertise in design research, inclusive design, and design strategy, Jones uses writing skills every day. Writing allows her to create cohesive user experiences, communicate about research, guide design strategy and decisions, and help others understand the value of design. Her lecture will include how she started as a reporter and catalog copywriter and the path that led to the role of UX Designer and Team Lead for the Center for Digital Accessibility & User Experience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. You’ll also hear how writing is integral to the digital experiences that have become central to our lives. (WebEx lecture)
