Annika Oeser, UX/UI Designer at Evolving Web
At Evolving Web, I guide our UX and content strategy practice. I also provide in-depth Drupal training and thought leadership to the Drupal community. I'm passionate about best practices and making Drupal easier to use.
I've worked with organizations like Princeton University, the Linux Foundation, and Travelocity to help them use Drupal. I've also trained teams across North America, including at Georgia Tech, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the federal government, and numerous web agencies. And I teach content strategy and UX workshops.
What else do I do? I lead the Promote Drupal initiative and I spend a lot of time hanging out at conferences, learning, and teaching what I've learned. I love talking about content strategy, user experience, design patterns, accessibility, Drupal, and open source.
Annika is the UX lead at Evolving Web and has been designing websites and web apps for over 12 years. She’s enthusiastic about user experience design and human-centred design principles. This includes user research and testing which is why she and Suzanne conducted a Drupal admin interface study and write blog posts about the Drupal UI.
