Faster Design Decisions with Style Tiles

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Friday 9th March, 2012

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

With responsive design designers need to rethink the process they go through to work with clients and developers to create successful visual designs. Rather than creating traditional comps, style tiles are a deliverable that help you to communicate with your client, establish a visual language and work iteratively with developers. In this presentation, Samantha will explain how to reinvent your process to leverage Style Tiles as a deliverable.
