Start the conversation about your content at the same time you’re planning your CMS. Make progress on the back-end at the same time as design and UX.
Being truly responsive–both in design and workflow–means using the right tool for each job. Get a laundry list of tools and techniques for designing, solving problems, and testing.
Without polishing design deliverables first, how do you plan for contingencies later–especially across devices? Find out by building a culture of trust and empowerment.
Make your team’s workflow as responsive as the products you’re building.
Create and talk about stylistic design elements in hours/days rather than weeks/months.
Use responsive design tools to make prototypes in the browser.
Make rapid iteration a consistent component of your design and communication processes.
Ben will talk through loads of real-world stories and case studies from his own experiences in running projects. You’ll then break into small groups to defend your process–with Ben’s help–and review how to overcome common workflow challenges.
When Ben Callahan speaks, everyone listens. And not because his voice sounds like James Earl Jones’ (because it doesn’t. It’s much more Ohio friendly than Darth Vader.)
It’s because what he says about working on responsive designs is practical, having been forged through years of designing amid layers of management and multiple stakeholders.
And fortunately for us (and everyone who’s had the pleasure to hear him), Ben has been a leading voice in making flexibility the core of responsive design workflows.
When he’s not enlightening design teams around the world, Ben is immersed in his role as president of Sparkbox, a 20-person company that builds responsive websites while practicing a collaborative, flexible workflow. He’s also the creator of the Build Responsively workshop series, and he’s written for .net Magazine and Smashing Magazine.
So if you’re looking for a fresh perspective that’ll leave you excited to get back to work, then don’t miss this workshop.
