Full Product Description

This workshop is geared toward designers who aren't afraid of stepping out of their comfort zone, as well as front-end developers who are heavily involved in the design process. You should at least know a little HTML and CSS. If you've read (and enjoyed) the book Responsive Design Workflow, you will enjoy the workshop. That said, anyone interested in the subjects covered is welcome, and the more technical aspects of the subject matter will be demonstrated step-by-step.

What you'll learn:
• A content-based approach to thinking about web design
• The why and how of low-fi responsive wireframes
• How to "design in text" and use plain text markup as a base for design mockups
• How making a "linear design" can simplify the responsive design process
• How to determine breakpoints, as well as how to visualize and design for them
• How to create responsive, web-based design mockups as an alternative to Photoshop comps
• How to present your web-based design mockups
• How to create and automate a style guide for your design

What hardware/software do you need?
• Please bring your own notebook with you to be able to follow along.
