Leading interactive design firm Adaptive Path will take us through their design process and talk about lessons that can be applied to journalism and media. Adaptive Path has helped lay the foundation for best practices online through their training workshops and thought leadership in the field, and by helping top companies improve how they interact with customers. Design and user experience become ever more critical as Web browsers have progressed and we move into the tablet era. Top designers from Adaptive Path, including co-founder Jesse James Garrett and CEO Peter Merholz, will offer their insights.
