This is the Rough Cut version of the printed book.

Forget fixed-width Photoshop comps, bloated client requirements, and overproduced wireframes. Yesterday’s web design deliverables fail to take into account the demands of responsive solutions. Design workflow hasn’t really changed, but best practices have. This book shows you how to adapt to the new paradigm and create sites for today’s web. Some of the strategies you’ll learn include:
  • how to better manage client expectations and development requirements
  • a practical approach for designing in the browser
  • documentation methods that outperform static Photoshop comps
  • a method for visualizing the points where responsive designs change
After absorbing the lessons in this book, you’ll leave behind old-school workflows and start working in ways that are uniquely suited to today’s multi-platform web.
