Content Design London

The Content Design Academy

Many talented content people are missing out on content design work because they don’t have the right ‘hands-on’ experience. We are changing that.

The Content Design Academy combines the learning of our training with practical work. All our techniques are based on best practice developed on projects we have worked on over the past decade.

The course

The next 12-week academy is from 6 September to 29 November 2022.

Over 12 weeks you will be working on content discovery, production and planning. Taking place 1 evening a week over 12 weeks, it will give you the chance to complete an example content design project guided by industry-leading experts.

This is a hands-on course where you will be producing content for a prototype. We will walk you through all the aspects of a content project:

  • understanding your audience,
  • writing targeted content,
  • measuring success,
  • looking at the bigger picture (content strategy),

See the full course outline.

What you get out of it

After the course you will be able to:

  • carry out focused discovery research,
  • identify and validate user needs,
  • create accessible user-focused content,
  • analyse data and set success and value metrics,
  • talk about all the elements of an agile content design project,
  • show a content design example you have worked on,
  • talk about content design within your organisation from team to board level.

Time and location

This course will be run over Zoom.

We will expect you to:

  • have some experience in content - journalism, tech author, copywriter etc all fine – you don’t - need to be a content designer,
  • be able to attend the course all 5 days,
  • bring your own laptop,
  • have access to Google docs.

Cost: £2,395 + VAT

“I've been able to use the Academy project as an example of my work to clients and my new employer. It also opened me up to a great network of other content designers – one of whom became a client of mine – and the course paid for itself within only a few months.”
