Gutenberg and the Content Design Opportunity

Jem Content Strategy, User Experience Design

It’s no secret that Gutenberg is WordPress’ biggest change to date. On one hand, its resemblance to distraction-free editors (e.g. Medium) is very positive. But on the other are fears about broken websites and businesses. Can something good ever come out of Gutenberg? And if so, how do we prepare for it?

This is an introduction to Gutenberg’s Content Design opportunity. It is a claim about how Gutenberg makes us better content creators through the blocks it comes out of. If you’ve ever wondered how smarter content can happen in a Gutenberg universe, then this is the place to start.
