Resources

 

If you use Sketch you know about the abundance of tools and resources available to help improve your design. In this article, I'm going to show you how to set up your document and get it ready for the design hand off.

 

Plugins and Resources:

First things first, gather the necessary tools for your design. One of my favorite things about Sketch is the open source mentality when it comes to plugins and resources, designers and developers can share innovative ways to improve your design workflow.

 

Design is a process. It involves many people, skills, programs, and timelines. To help you get a better idea of our design process, I came up with this overview, which begins with the initial meeting and ends with handing off the designs to the development team.

What is web accessibility?

It refers to practicing good web standards to design, and develop websites, that are accessible to everyone. By removing any barriers that prevent people with disabilities to interact or access the site.

Web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) was created to help standardize web content. It's very important because it focuses on the user goals instead of current technologies.
