Content + Cocktails at Handsome offered innovative design and ingenuity from inspiring women communicators.
Handsome recently hosted a Content + Cocktails event at our W 6th St. studio on June 5th. The night featured Content Strategist Ashlee Harris speaking about her recent article published on social media platform Medium regarding the use of content mood boards to ease the ideation process of design. We worked closely with Women Communicators of Austin in collaboration for the event.
Jenny Magic, President of Women Communicators and Strategist at Convince & Convert, kicked off the event speaking about the importance of sharing creative strategies to help forward the design industry and innovation technology. Ashlee followed with a presentation focused on her development of a mockup for a product idea via research and using a content mood board to organize and prioritize ideas.
In her article, Ashlee uses her unique app idea and its design process to aid her discussion aimed to emphasize the necessity of alignment across project team members. Following her presentation, Ashlee opened up the discussion of how to ensure the achievement of such alignment to attendees via guided conversation points.
The event thrived on quality conversations between members of the local design community in attendance, complemented by good food and great cocktails. We plan to engage the Austin design community in future content-happy hour events, showcasing the skills of our own team members and other experienced design professionals with innovative ideas relevant to the progress of the industry, as well as those simply worth sharing.
