For the best and quickest path to market, a designer needs to work with development principles in mind.
In an ideal world, design would exist on a plane with art, a noble pursuit of one’s creative passions, unbound by time or outside influences. Back in the real world, we’ve got deadlines and budgets and development schedules to hit.
That’s not such a bad thing, really—some of the best solutions are born from constraints, designed and rethought with extreme efficiency in mind.
As screens change sizes and the product landscape continues to evolve, our designs need to be more flexible than ever. Pixel perfect is a thing of the past, and perhaps no one is more excited about that than developers who actually have to code these things we dream up.
With some planning and discussion, there are tons of small tweaks you can make to your workflow and design that will make life easier for you—and for your developers.
