Design to development is a process that involves creating a blueprint for an application before beginning the coding stage. In the design phase, designers work with stakeholders to gain an understanding of their needs and document those details in a use case or user story. The next step is to develop wireflow diagrams or other visual elements that will be used as guides for developers when they begin working on the project. Designers may also create mockups at this point, which can be used later by front-end developers to build out product pages, landing pages, and other marketing assets.
These articles explain the design process and provide examples of quickly executed ideas. Design to development articles show the development process with wireframes, mockups, or prototypes. These articles may include basic sketches or hand-drawn presentations of theoretical applications.
