Prototyping Your Workflow explores the process of introducing new ways of collaboration for working on innovative approaches to development in a way that retains organizational efficiency while not having the client “bankroll our workflow remodeling project”. Techniques used include a more direct approach in working together with cross-functional development teams:
pairing designers and developers early on in a project, and having the developer create markup that “waterskis” behind the designer’s sketches and Photoshop explorations.
What I found particular interesting is the implementation of HTML/CSS wireframes with an eye towards eventually delivering HTML/CSS prototypes to the client in the final round. I believe there is a definite trend in that direction.
