Welcome to Screen Space, your podcast about creating usable, accessible, effective, and efficient web, blog, and digital media design for the everyday (and non-expert) designer. I am your host, Dr. Jennifer L. Bowie. In this episode I’ll talk about what is up with Screen Space.
I am providing only brief show notes here. I cover three things:
- Update on my career
- My plans for Screen Space
- My recent publications
Updates on My Career
I recently took a position at a Senior Analyst of Usability Research at The Home Depot. I do usability research on their website and digital content, and I love it.
My Plans for Screen Space
- Every other Monday (12:01 am) I’ll post a Screen Space Podcast
- The off Mondays (wit out podcasts) I’ll post a typeface of the week blog entry
- Wednesdays and Fridays I’ll post tips of the day
- Once a week I’ll post at least one other blog entry
