This Week in Web Design: The Discovery Phase [VIDEO]

This Week in Web Design is hosted by HOW Interactive Design Conference board member and speaker Jose Caballer. This episode, the last one of 2012, is especially smart—using a discovery phase at the beginning of every project.


In this episode, Jose and co-presenters Aure Gimon and Tatjana Luethi talk about this up-front definition phase that is crucial to every design project. They talk about the three key elements of the discovery phase and why they’re important to address in order to ensure the success of the project. (And yes, you should be getting paid for this initial stage of a web design project.) Check out the episode:
