On larger projects it is likely that you be working with at least one other person on front-end tasks. This can be a great learning experience and be helpful to your developers too.
There are several aspects that can make a collaborative project a success. I have broken them down into development tools, techniques, and review processes.

Drupal is a very powerful content management system that can be used to accomplish a wide varity of business goals. It can be used to build simple or very complex websites. It is important before you start your design project to understand what is possible so you can avoid costly implementation mistakes. It is equally important to have a plan and understand how to construct a workable plan to accomplish your goals.

In this presentation, given at Drupalcamp Atlanta this past October, I discuss techniques and best practices when creating a plan to build and designing a drupal website.

Ever stop to think about how much of an impact trees have on everyday life? Since the beginning of time, trees have provided humankind with two very obvious benefits - food and oxygen. As life has evolved, so has the importance of trees. We have found their utility to be ever increasing as they purify soil, clean air, control noise pollution, shade and cool homes, and increase property value along with many other advantages.

The commonly discussed phrase "form follows function" is a principle of modern design. Many interactive designers follow this approach when creating a user experience because it keeps design intimately tied to the purpose of a system. Whether that system is a product dispenser, like a vending machine, or a banking software application, the interface is typically most successful when it satisfies the functions it's intended to serve.

Intro

During my trip to Drupalcon Porltand this year I discovered a new grid system/framework called Singularity Grid System or Singularity GS for short. Since then, I have taken some time to work with this framework and I have to say it's pretty awesome. It took me some time to get my mind around this novel way of creating grids and layouts, but after I created a few, things started to click.

The AdaptiveTheme for Drupal 7 is a great HTML5 base theme that makes it easy to build out a responsive website quickly. It comes with a plethora of built-in extensions and polyfills to combat differences in browsers, devices and operating systems. It also expands on the basic idea of "smartphones" and "tablets" to include portrait and landscape versions of each.

If you are accustomed to editing the Drupal template files to control the layout of your theme, you can do what you've always done. The difference is that AdaptiveTheme has some built-in options to rearrange sidebar and content regions on mobile devices.

I want to continue the conversation on wireframing that came up in a recent Mediacurrent blog "Rational Redesigns - Visual Planning." Jeff mentioned that at Mediacurrent we do not start design with mockups or comps but instead create a visual plan using high fidelity wireframes. Wireframing, in my opinion, is integral to creating a successful design. This is one step you don't want to skip.
