Design to Development - Make it Easy! Peter Lauwers (Sept 4th: note date change)



Welcome back! We have an outstanding speaker for our season-opening September 4th Meetup: Peter Lauwers will join us to discuss "Design to Development - Make it Easy!".

*Please note because of Labor Day, this Mobile Monday will be on Wednesday, September 4th*.

Producing the right assets for the project can be a big pain. Missing bucket sizes, vectors that just don’t work correctly, tight deadlines to produce size changes in Photoshop or Illustrator, and learning new tools - all are potential pitfalls and obstacles in the way of achieving a project timeline.

Adobe XD exports assets in a way that developers can use right away. The best part is that it already integrates with the Creative Suite products that designers already use, making it likely that this will be a welcome addition to the toolbox for the product team.

We’ll go through what you can expect from Adobe XD from the perspective of a developer as well as a designer.

This topic area is a very common roadblock or detour in a development process. Join us to hear about a way to streamline things, create better collaborations and possibly save days or weeks on a project.
