Many of us work in wireframes and lightweight interactive prototypes to capture, illustrate, discuss, and refine the layout and behavior of the interface we are working on — to design the user experience. And we recognize that visual design is critical for getting to polished, usable, and delightful user experiences. Sometimes, user experience designers are responsible for executing the detailed visual design, but often that is handled by someone else, a visual design specialist.
What are the best ways to facilitate the understanding of the design intent and the communication between the experience design and visual design roles, throughout the lifecycle of a project?
Who will benefit:
- Effective ways for the UX designer to convey interaction behaviors and visual design needs to the visual designer
- How the visual designer reflects their understanding of the design
- How to iterate together through increasing levels of refinement of the design
- Negotiating the level of fidelity that each designer is responsible for
- What the UX designer can do to make the visual design process effective and efficient
- Individuals who work on teams with separate or overlapping roles for interaction and visual design, to learn how to work together more effectively
- Consultants who work on UX or visual design and hand off to client for them to complete the other piece, to learn how to get a better chance of success
At the end of the presentation, we will have a discussion with the audience to compare our experiences and to share insights and techniques.
