We designers aren't the only ones needing to adapt to a changing web ecosystem. Our clients and bosses also need to change their expectations around what a "site design" entails today and what deliverables will be provided during the design and development process. Every member of our panel has experience selling responsive design to clients and adjusting deliverables and payment schedules in an appropriate way. They'll share their experiences and welcome questions from you and your fellow attendees.
