Should we design in Photoshop or in the browser?1:33 with Nick Pettit
Nick is asked if designing in Photoshop is a waste of time. Should we design directly in the browser?
[Treehouse Teacher Q & A] 0:00 Do you think designing a website in Photoshop has now become a waste of time? 0:01 Should we start designing directly in the browser? 0:05 Now, I was actually thinking about this because a lot of times you want to present 0:11 a markup to a client and you can do that in an App like balsamic markups 0:14 where you actually have the squiggly lines that tell the person that's looking at it-- 0:19 this is just a markup, it's not actually something that's real. 0:25 But the squiggly lines that they have in balsamic markups are important-- 0:30 they communicate that it is a markup. 0:33 I thought it might be cool to actually put together like a small little CSS file 0:36 or CSS markup framework basically that would allow you to throw down 0:41 a border image or something like that, that actually has those squiggly lines in it 0:49 and then you can design in the browser with the idea in mind 0:55 that it is just going to be a markup. 1:02 It's always risky showing client something that you've been working on 1:04 and not necessarily something that's completely done. 1:08 Right. >>Because they want to make those changes like extreme 1:11 and it's not necessarily representational of like your best work. 1:16 So, that's why I like wireframing stuff up beforehand. 1:22 [Question: Should we design in Photoshop or in the browser?] 1:27 [Treehouse Teacher Q & A] 1:28
