At the MetaRefresh 2014, I’m doing a 3+ hours workshop on how designers can leverage modern design workflows, weirdly titled – The Design Superheroes who uses Modern Design Workflows.
Today, the rate at which Front-End Development Tools and Utilities gets introduced are mind boggling. It is indeed quite hard to keep up. Getting familiar with few of these tools and mastering it will help designers get things done quicker, better, produce optimized results and participate with the whole team – contributing to writing production ready codes and be able to run repeatable task easily. The result will be that designers can concentrate, focus and dedicate more time on designing products, applications and systems instead of just ‘making things work.’
The purpose of this workshop is to initiate and ignite that idea amongst designers who code and breath life to their static designs. Check out the Workshop’s Companion Site for more details.
It will be a long way after this workshop for a designer to become a ‘superhero’ in design but it should be a good start.
