Improve Your Workflow

Erin Lewis

In addition to client work, Bright Umbrella also produces CTRL+CLICK CAST, a tech podcast featuring interviews from the web industry’s leaders and innovators. In this new series, we’re packaging some of our (and your!) favorite episodes as a quick reference on relevant dev, design and business topics. For our inaugural post, it’s all about workflow!

Workflow touches every aspect of what we do. And in almost every episode, our guests share ways to improve workflow that are useful for designers, developers and small business owners alike. Whether it’s practicing empathy with your team, streamlining your deliverables process, or adjusting expectations of yourself, these selected shows are full of actionable tips to help you get better at what you do ... while having fun doing it!

  • Designer-Developer Collaboration with Megan Zlock and Owen Shifflett
    Megan and Owen discuss how they make conversations productive, focus on a collaborative mindset and use empathy to not only do better work but foster an enjoyable professional environment.
  • Live Wires with Travis Gertz
    Travis shares the benefits web-based wireframes provide to both the UX process and the final product. We discuss the pros and cons of frameworks in general, and why Live Wires is intentionally flexible and non-prescriptive.
  • Perfectionism & Procrastination with Denise Jacobs
    An oldie, but goodie from our archive! Denise explains how to alleviate perfectionist tendencies and embrace structured, productive procrastination. She also shares tips on how to be more efficient, creative and happier web workers, individually and in teams.

Add these episodes to your “must listen” list! If you don’t have time for a full show, we’ve got transcripts — right on the page or downloadable in PDF format! — available for every episode along with detailed show notes. Skim through to get all the info in less time.
