From the AGDA website…

Creating good websites is hard.

However, as a designer, marketer, project manager or business owner, knowing how to do it well can be an absolute game-changer.

Whether you’re making one for yourself, for your company or for a client, planning, designing and launching a new website can be a thoroughly interesting and highly rewarding experience. There is nothing more satisfying than having a website you made ‘go live’ and watching people from all over the world visit a tiny part of the internet that you created.

What’s even better is seeing the incredible impact a new website can have. From increasing sales or sign-ups to boosting performance or shifting perception – a damn good website can do it all and more. But the key to creating a damn good website, is running a damn good website project!

In this 2.5-hour class, you will be taken on a tightly compact run-through of the multiple stages of a typical website project, from the very first step to the very last drop.

We will tackle the following:
• Workshop sessions and website strategy
• Costing, scoping and project planning
• Audience groups and online business objectives
• Features and functionality
• Copywriting and content development
• Site structure, wireframes and prototyping
• UX/UI design practices and process
• Testing and launching your site
• On-going maintenance and digital marketing
• Time for questions, queries and discussion

“The course was exactly what I was hoping for. Loved all the info on the strategy briefing session. Thanks!’

‘Before the class began, I wasn’t sure if two hours was too long. But after Richie started the first slide, I didn’t want the class to stop! I love that he was so open about his work experience and I learnt a lot from his class, a lot of practical guides that I can follow.”

“Super engaging, lots of insights, great examples, great presenter”

“Brilliant workshop, highly informative. The information about what to cover off in a website strategy/discovery was gold.”

Richie Meldrum

Writer & Strategist / Creative Strategy Director at Interchange – a culture and behaviour change consultancy.

Hello, I am Richie.

I started off as a writer, struggled as a journalist, turned into a copywriter and came out as a strategist.

I’ve worked in brand and digital agencies in the UK and Australia for over 12 years, collaborating with designers, technologists, project managers, clients and loads of other incredibly smart people that do things I can’t.

Over the years, I’ve learnt how to use my love of research, writing and human behaviour to influence the outcome of hundreds of projects spanning brand, digital and creative content – from cultural institutions to global corporations, Italian-made women’s shoes to Vietnamese noodle delivery apps.

I’m passionate about sharing what I know/don’t with others through teaching, speaking and getting involved whenever I can.

I love juice, outdoor swimming pools and battle rap, and am partly responsible for the success of Russell Brand.
