In a previous post, I wrote about how and why copywriters and designers should work together. I spoke to my colleague Vincent Gschwindemann, a UX/Visual Designer, and Evelina Georgieva, the Chief Business Development Officer at Pryv, to get their opinions on why they think this type of collaboration is helpful and beneficial. To sum it up:
- It saves time
- It allows for a more direct flow between your freelance or in-house creative teams
- It helps the copywriter write copy that fits into the design
- It helps the designer create a design that supports the copy
- Everyone is happy!
As a part two of this article, I've written a post about how copywriters and translators can work together to improve any type of marketing piece that contains text. Similarly to a copywriter-designer collaboration, this one saves you time and it has the added benefit of ensuring that your voice and style is consistent across all languages. How? Head on over to Ceci-Cela Communication's blog to learn more and to read about how I worked with a translation agency and individual translators to nail a 90-page brochure printed in 10+ languages.
