Afternoon Workshop

Lean Mobile-First UX: Get Awesome Responsive Sites to Market Quickly

“Bring questions, walk away with Wireframes”! During this dynamic workshop, we work together in small groups focusing on identifying, producing, testing and iterating on mobile wireframes for your key responsive web workflows. I’ll show you how to create and test paper wireframes for the core pages of your responsive website before writing a line of code by applying responsive design patterns. You will practice light-weight guerrilla user testing strategies that will save time and money for your entire team, without sacrificing delicious “eye-meat” -- key experience components such as transitions, interactions and copy. It's the lean UX protein you crave, with all the added richness and flavor! Paper wireframes we produce during the workshop are detailed enough to jump straight into final visual skinning and development. This workshop will give you complete lean design methodology you need *right now* to take on any responsive design challenge with confidence.
