Hi. I'm Lizzie Kost, your content designer.
I specialize in user experience methodology to write good (easy breezy, beautiful) content.
What I can do in content design
I love creating content that is clear, concise, and useful. It's such a noisy world.
I'm a twice-certified UX writer. I have demonstrable knowledge of human-centered and iterative design theory and practices:
voice and tone guides
behavioral design theory
social media content creation
What I've been working on
This winter, I received a certificate in Behavioral Design from Irrational Labs. I've been excited to incorporate what I learned, layering behavioral design theory in the UX writing process. I'm currently an editor and write content for Habit Weekly, the world's leading behavioral design newsletter and podcast.
I recently published a fun editorial in my local paper.
What I'm curious about
I'm fascinated by neuroscience and understanding how the brain creates emotions, how we go from "information to understanding."
Future hope: contributing to a necessary redesign for layperson user experiences navigating the legal system. I'm fascinated by Stefania Passera's research using data visualization for understanding complicated legal concepts.
I love the intersection of civic service and technology.
I'm a PTO president. I love community volunteering. Since it's summer, you might find me on a lake or river.
I read a lot. My favorite book is Italo Calvino's If On a Winter's Night A Traveler. My most recently read favorite book is Susannah Clarke's Piranesi. I love The Princess Bride movie and book almost equally and so much that I wrote a thesis about them a long time ago.
E.B. White's, "Thanks, (but)...I must decline for secret reasons," is a quote that makes me laugh.
