Communicating Design In a Multiscreen World

Communicating Design In a Multiscreen World

Presented at Webvisions Portland 2014

Much of the conventional design process and documentation we rely on is ineffective when it comes to communicating how we want our designs to translate across a wide range of devices and screen sizes. This talk is all about producing effective, efficient deliverables for an increasingly mobile-accessed Web, and practical design methods you can put into use right away.
