Description

I remember handing off my first website for development. I was super excited and spent hours getting everything perfect.

Discussing details back and forth with my client, and then sent it off and thought I was done.

And then I saw it in the browser. It did not look like what I imagined AT ALL!

I did not understand why the real thing looked so different from my designs.

I did not know why images were blurry on some screens and crisp on others.

I did not understand why my typography stuck together like chewing gum

I did not understand why everything was just a bit all over the place.

And I don’t even want to mention what happened on different screen sizes.

And when I asked for advice on how to fix this, I got lost in translation. So I started reading and researching. I talked to other designers and developers. I tried out different tools and techniques that I would like to share with you.

This course is aimed at beginners in web design or advanced UI Designers, thriving to improve their handoff experience between design and development.
