In our next session, we're going to shift gears a bit, and focus more on bread-and-butter UX methods, where wireframes tend to lie at the epicenter.
Designers from Moment and Pivotal Labs will compare and contrast how they work, with a specific focus on wireframes. While the former is a design agency and the latter an Agile development shop, both use Adobe Illustrator as a core part of their practice. They'll discuss why it's their tool of choice, their respective practices for wireframing and visual design, and benefits and challenges of using Illustrator. Following their presentation, we'll invite the audience to participate in a broader discussion about Agile, wireframing, and UX tools.
