Designing with Development in Mind

Design and development are supposed to work hand-in-glove. But in practice, it doesn’t always go that way. Brad Campeau-Laurion, partner at Alley Interactive, will present strategies for designers to create work that translates seamlessly into code, based on Alley’s extensive work with news media clients ranging from the New York Post to the Center for Investigative Reporting. Attendees will gain insight into how to “test” designs for common development pitfalls, and how to communicate design intentions as clearly as possible.
