Web Design is a Process

Long Form


Nobody puts IA in a corner! Web design and development does not start with Photoshop or end with a commit. It is all the stuff in between that matters. Get ready to get your hands dirty in this workshop exploring all the facets that make up the field of "web design".


Web design does not start with a Photoshop comp. Photoshop is step 7. Or 10. Or 50. Before you draw a single pixel on your canvas there are a myriad of things that need to be covered. This workshop is an exploration of the web design and development process, all the way from the first client meeting to the shipping of the final product. The audience will take part in the IA and UX process for a ficticious project and learn techniques for card sorting, personas, concurrent development, agile process, version control, the works.

This will be a hands-on workshop to give people who work in or want to enter the field of professional web design and development a better understanding of all the roles they’ll have to play and all the ground they’ll need to cover if they want to be truly successful.
