I'm Kate Robinson
I'm an experienced information architect and user researcher, with a background in content strategy and design.
What I Do
In a nutshell, I organize information to make useful, useable websites. This makes people happy, including me.
I conduct user and stakeholder research to find opportunities and objectives. I inventory and audit content to understand what you've got and how it's working. I develop systems and structures for your information, and give guidance on content messaging and structure. I create wireframes and prototypes to bring ideas to life. I also manage teams—both large groups working on website projects and the day-to-day of my direct reports.
That's just the quick list. If you're curious about what else I can do, check out my skill set.
