Meeting with Russell. Working on the mini dashboard layout practice project. Russell was working on the project overview layout. On the layout and planning, you have to take into consideration the length of the text (variable lengths). You end up making big ones, small ones, and mid sized ones to see how the layout looks and what is allowed (text and graphics - hit all the variables). Not everything lines up perfectly. We did some masking, locking, and playing with layout ideas, all in Adobe XD.

Wow, the value of a good mock-up is huge. It almost becomes live without being live. Being able to show and play with alternates and design decisions - duplicate, tweak, duplicate, tweak - see what you like. Towards the end of the session, we were working with profile pictures and playing with masks and opacity (alpha transparency). We also talked about showing and designing starting modes, active selections, and watermarks. Lots of playing with our layouts. Good session.
