Writing Effective Design Specs

Having a good idea is only the first step. Communicating that idea to the rest of the team is the real heart of the designer’s job. But what makes an effective design spec?

In this talk I’ll cover the purpose of specs, structure and language, and best practices for communicating clearly. I’ll explore how to resolve conflicts between competing ideas, how to bring other disciplines into your process, and how to build consensus. Finally, I’ll end with practical take-home action items and Q&A time.
