Evolution of a Working Process: In the Trenches with Responsive Web Design
Thursday, December 12, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CST)
Chicago, Illinois

Responsive design changed the way we think about designing for the Web and in turn changed the way in which we work with our clients. Palantir.net has been in the trenches working with responsive Web design from the beginning and can help you get a jump start on your own best practices.

In this talk, Palantir.net’s senior designers Patrick Grady and Michael Mesker will share lessons learned from project work so you can ….

• understand common pain points that clients and designers experience during a RWD project
• learn specifics about the evolution of the design process and tools employed at Palantir.net
• discover how your RWD projects can be more successful.

Doors open at 6; talk begins at 6:30. There will be time for Q & A after the talk. Refreshments provided. No on-site registration available.
