Chris Coughlan

Lead UX Architect

Emerging from the world of library science, Chris has extensive experience working with a variety of web-enabled information systems. She has always enjoyed what librarians call the reference interview – it’s about understanding who you’re talking to and what information they seek. Accordingly, she believes a web experience expands beyond content on a page to a conversation between the viewer and the content owner. She works with stakeholders to interpret user needs, strategic objectives and content to anticipate the user’s needs before a first interaction and create an experience that supports digital conversations and findability.

Chris has worked with inspiring organizations such as Human Rights Watch, UC Berkeley and the World Wildlife Fund to create systems that focus on the user and further the organization’s goals. She has spoken at Design4Drupal, Special Libraries Association events and regional Drupal Camps. She also organizes a local content strategy meetup and is the Past President of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Special Libraries Association.
