Troubled by wasting too much time on inefficient remote communication? Solutions are here.
One thing you can do is to let designers send you files using FileSquare. Designers tend to explain why they design this way and specify the color or dimension in order to get approval faster.
Review designs with designers’ notes
For example, when your designers want to explain some design issues or the reason of changes, they can click and drag an area, leaving notes like “Brighter button & more contrast to catch the eye”.
And with things like opacity, hex code of a color and dimension that need to be specified, designers can mark with “white 80%”, “##EEA9B8#”, “88 pixels high” and so on, these information comes in handy for developer to turn design into code.
When you find something designers didn’t show clearly, you can ask questions, such as:
- What’s the hover state of these buttons?
- When users get a message, what the notification would be like?
- Should there be a shade?
- What font and alignment should be used?
Opening a discussion is very simple: annotate the area needs to be confirmed and have a conversation with your designers, until the problem is solved.
Approve designs and control the progress
You can approve the design step by step and control the progress of a project.
For example, after proofreading the copywriting of your company’s newsletter, you may leave something like “Okay, I guess the copywriting can be finalized.” to indicate others can move on.
Wish to get all the teammates involved? Designers and you won’t miss any comment or reply because FileSquare sends you notification emails whenever the project has updates.
