It is always a treat to get a peek inside a designer’s process. I had the pleasure of organizing another AIGA Raleigh’s Homegrown Lunch & Learn last week. It is great to be able to just sit, listen, learn, eat, and mingle with other creatives. The Web Designer’s Tool Kit presentation with Mindy Wagner of Viget gave helpful insights on web design, showing Viget’s streamlined and successful workflow to an intruiged crowd at Sitti in downtown Raleigh. She took us through their process of Kickoffs, Mood Boards, Comps, and Style Guides explaining their intricacies relating directly to real projects they worked on. Mindy discussed building trust with clients, testing the waters with mood boards, etc. all while answering questions from inquiring minds in the audience. Check out the recap at AIGA Raleigh’s blog post.
After the lunch, Mindy provided all attendees with a Bucket O’ Links:
