Experientia
This is the first post in the relaunched Putting People First, a gateway full of resources for the experience design community.

Sporting a clean and refreshing design by Experientia partner Jan-Christoph Zoels and Janina Boesch, PPF is conceived to function as an entry gate for all matters related to experience design, user experience and innovation.

Features and tools

The top navigation bar, an idea of Experientia partner Michele Visciola, organises all categories, including some new ones, grouped under easy-to-remember headings, whereas the right-side column features “The Guesthouse”, with feeds from a guest blog and the latest news from Experientia.

The site takes advantage of some of the more advanced WordPress technologies. Readers will particularly appreciate the Live Search and Live Archives tools, which allow highly accurate search and easy access to the archives. For more information on the how and why of this site, check the About section.

Guest bloggers

We are pleased to announce that we will be opening up Putting People First to guest bloggers and guest contributors. If you are interested please write us: info at experientia dot com.

URL, post links, redirects, email updates and new rss feed

The URL is www.experientia.com/blog. All old post, category or archive URL’s on the former TypePad blog at blog.vanderbeeken.com will automatically redirect to the corresponding page on the new site.

However, please make sure to update your rss feed (which will not update automatically) and bookmarks.

You can also choose to receive your Putting People First updates via email rather than via an rss reader or by viewing the web site

Webmasters and bloggers: it would be nice if you could also update your blogrolls and post links. If you linked to a particular post (you can check this by doing a search for “vanderbeeken”), click on it and you will automatically be taken to the same post on the new site.

Design and development credits

The site was redesigned by Jan-Christoph Zoels and Janina Boesch. Technical development was in the hands of the WordPress wizzard Beverly Tang.
