Designing for today's web: working in a post-psd world
The explosion of new internet-capable devices has redefined what it means to design for the web, but our process as web designers remains largely unchanged.
In this session, we'll discuss how our methodology can evolve to create content-focused, lightweight, and flexible sites. By prototyping designs directly in the browser, we can be more collaborative with stakeholders and developers, and we can execute and iterate more efficiently.
We'll also cover the role graphic design plays in the shifting landscape of the web, and how our visual styles can adapt to meet these new demands.
