Design & User Experience at AmericaEast

Earlier this year I was asked to participate in a panel discussion/presentation on User Experience and Design in news media websites and applications. My role was to come in as a general industry expert on a panel of folks with significantly more experience in the news industry than myself. We discussed the benefits of atomic design, general user experience rules and design fundamentals to follow when considering a website redesign or overhaul, and where news media is currently, in the larger realm of design trends.
