In this 60-minute video caught live at An Event Apart Austin, Samantha Warren presents a new way of designing and collaborating in the age of responsive web design.
Diving into responsive design projects can be daunting. Old design practices are cumbersome when thinking in terms of web systems that will span a wide variety of devices and dimensions. What if we had an artifact that not only helped us communicate with clients, but allowed for developers to jump into the project earlier? Style tiles are a design artifact consisting of fonts, colors and interface elements that communicate the essence of a visual brand for the web. They create a strong foundation early in the web design process for talking with clients, establishing a visual language, and working iteratively with developers. Learn how to apply design principles and bring confidence and agility to your process by using style tiles.
Samantha is one of twelve superb designers and thinkers speaking at An Event Apart Atlanta Feb. 16–18, 2015, where she will present “Guerrilla Design Tactics,” which answers the question: it takes a village to design a responsive design system, so how do you convince the village that they need to? Joining Samantha in Atlanta will be Sarah Parmenter, Yesenia Perez-Cruz, Tim Brown, Daniel Mall, Mat Marquis, Dave Rupert, Jason Grigsby, Sara Wachter-Boettcher, Josh Clark, Eric Meyer, and Jeffrey Zeldman.
