Webinar Recording: Designing Quick Reference Guides

A couple of weeks ago I gave an STC webinar called Designing Quick Reference Guides. This was a general STC webinar, and usually I am not allowed to repost the recording, but due to some audio difficulties, I had to re-record it, and the STC gave me permission to post the re-recording. Here are the files to watch or download the webinar:

I'm a technical writer working for the 41st Parameter in San Jose, California. I'm interested in topics related to technical writing, such as visual communication, API documentation, information architecture, web publishing, JavaScript, front-end design, content strategy, Jekyll, and more. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Thanks for the useful material. And for quoting Robin Williams’s The Non-Designer’s Design Book, which is now on my Kindle.

    Thanks for the tips, ideas, and suggestions as I prepare my first QRG. My first decision — kindle or paperback for the Robin Williams book. :)

      For the Robin Williams book, you probably want paperback, because there are a lot of images in it. But I don’t have a kindle, so maybe they display well.
