  1. Nick Jones We Are Titans Kill Your Photoshop

  2. We need to talk. IT’S AN INTERVENTION FOR YOUR PROCESS.

  3. This is the old way. LET’S HOVER, ARGUE, AND MAKE

    THINGS WE CAN’T SHIP.
  4. I has a sad. Wireframe in Illustrator. Have a pile

    of meetings, ship the wireframes to a designer. Designer generates a pile of PSD’s. Have hapless “web designers” slice things up and make table layouts, or mild CSS if you’re lucky.
  5. Problem? THERE’S A WORD FOR THIS: “ENTRENCHMENT.”

  6. The new way. THINGS CAN BE SO AWESOME.

  7. I’m happy and my coffee tastes like sunshine and dreams!

    Wireframe anywhere — Illustrator, Balsalmic, etc. (Even on paper using UI Stencils.) Make friends with the grid. Use Twitter Bootstrap to create one, or make your own homegrown 960 grid stylesheet. Iterate, iterate, iterate. Git is the new layers. Plus, PSD comp @ 45MB, Code Comp @ 70k.
  8. But I don’t code! EVERYBODY STARTS SOMEWHERE.

  9. The bottom line. OR, “LET’S REVIEW.”

  10. Close me. AND THEN YOU CAN HAVE COFFEE.

  11. Thanks. @nickmjones
