    You make them happen.

  • Content Strategy

    The right message. Presented the right way.

    Right when your user needs it.

     

    I craft actionable plans & accomplish-able workflows;

    Lead rich, relevant & timely content development;

    Untangle data puzzles; and

    Tend to every microscopic content detail.

    User Experience Design

    Sometimes we have to look sideways

    to find the right way to build something.

     

    I ask hard questions;

    Research & consider the unexpected;

    Define powerful taxonomies & lay smooth IA paths; and

    Design user-focused optimized systems.

  • Let's start with what you really want to know... 

    How do you pronounce Siouxzi? Basically, it's Suzy. Feel free to shorten it to Sz.

    I've been building digital moments

    for 15 years.  

     

    Currently the Associate Director of Content Strategy and Management at a Chicago agency, I've been the strategist, the content manager, the UXD and the IA on projects big and small. From mom-and-pop sites to Fortune 100 brand system centers, I've created global and localized B2B enterprise experiences, internal business hubs and national B2C e-commerce sites.

     

    I'm deeply passionate about crafting a great experience for both front-end and back-end users, because a great digital experience today won't be a great one tomorrow, if it's not properly maintained.

     

    What else?

     

    I'm somewhat geeky, love riding bikes, painting umbrellas and making things (so many things). I laugh daily with my family and am known to make up songs about whatever I am doing at that moment. Because of, or in spite of, this people like to work with me.

     

    Want to know more? Contact me, I love a good conversation.

    I credit Siouxzi with opening my eyes to the value of the content management role in large scale web development projects and also for setting a very high bar in that role.

    Siouxzi is a master at pulling together mass amounts of information and distilling it into easy-to-use and easy-to understand formats.
