Do not miss this inspiring keynote speech of Dutch Media Innovator and MediaMonk Jouke Vuurmans at SXSW. In the New Dutch Wave house he talks about the challenges of creative professionals in UX Design.
Despite the smart move from companies of investing millions in the digital space, the cornerstone of digital ecosystems, the website, is in need of help. Dot.coms today look awful. Offering a ton of information but little inspiration, they’re uninviting, uninspiring and represent one of the biggest #fails in brand's’ digital being.
So how can websites start complimenting well-crafted campaigns and tell a compelling story? In this session, long-time Monks Jouke Vuurmans discuss the pressing issues currently holding.coms back.
The session covers the key topics of bridging the gap between Marketing and IT, combining sales (ROI) and stories (brand experience), and shifting focus from a brand's corporate home to an inspirational Flagship experience. Jouke also outlines why, like a great campaign, websites should be a source of pride and all about a mix of strong digital thinking and design, with campaign-quality content, a resourceful UX and IA and to top it off, a layer of A.I.
Be sure to be at the New Dutch Wave House at 2pm, Tuesday March 14th to hear this inspiring talk.
