Full-day workshop • June 25th
In this workshop, Dan will share insights into his tools and techniques for integrating design thinking into your product development process. You’ll learn how to craft powerful design approaches through collaborative brainstorming techniques, and how to involve your entire team in the design process.
Building responsive websites is hard! No longer can we get away with churning out some comps, writing barebones HTML and CSS, and calling it a day. We have to get comfortable using phrases like "performance budgets," "device-agnostic," "fluid width," toss our heavy documentation and involve our entire team in the design process, and to establish the right metrics to evaluate our design’s success.
1) Introduce a collaborative, team-based design approach
2) Establish success criteria for your design projects
3) Assemble, sketch, and code your team’s design approaches
4) Iterate and converge on a design solution that addresses a real-world problem
We want you to spend your effort in the parts of the design process that pack the most punch. We promise you’ll look at your design process differently and immediately be able to see ways to trim the fat.
This workshop is appropriate for all experience levels. This workshop is for designers, art directors, creative directors, developers, project managers, and anyone else who believes that responsive web design doesn’t have to have a million comps.
Laptop is recommended but not required.
