One of the main benefits to the traditional waterfall process is that it provides plenty of time for designers to refine their output, thinking through the big picture as well as the details before implementation. However, agile/lean workflow upends that to a large degree, with design delivered in a more just-in-time fashion. Faster turnaround isnt anathema to producing delightful work, but there is a balancing act that needs to be done. Much as code is refactored throughout a project, the same occurs with design, with it evolving as needs shift and as the project comes together. In this talk Melissa Scott, lead designer, and Barton Mcguire, lead developer, will describe their experiences with Distiller, a Substantial client project that was built in agile/lean fashion and has evolved over time. Using validation and an iterative approach theyve launched Distiller and turned it into an experience that has resonated with users and critics alike.
