It’s clear now more than ever that building for the web, mobile, and other devices is akin to product design, not graphic design: Everyone involved is a member of a design team; our roles are design-centric regardless of our title.
Most of us spend most of our lives creating wireframes that inform visual design, but what if you’ve never been involved in the visual design process? Dan will show you how to work more closely with visual designers, why ugly wireframes help good designers, and how you can incorporate the best practices of visual and product designers into your work. Learn how to get involved and engaged with the visual layer of the work you do and start thinking like a true designer.
