  • Ellen Amaral and Beth Soderberg: Bridging the Gap Between Design and Development

    WordCamp Lancaster 2016Speakers: Ellen Amaral, Beth Soderberg

    April 20, 2016 — Designers and developers are both required to build world-class websites, but sometimes it can feel like a struggle for us to work together in a truly collaborative way. In this session, we’ll share a variety of strategies to bridge the gap between design and development ranging from optimizing workflow between designers and developers with unique skillsets; replacing responsive mockups with side-by-side collaboration; creating clean, grid-based, developer-friendly design files; and developing new layouts and features in a way that respects the original design. We’ll cover these approaches and more as we share the process we use to (happily!) work together as a designer/developer team.
