We’re proud of the team members that make up Slide UX and want to give you a chance to meet them. Our Meet a Slider series continues with a profile of Lindsay Winters, a user experience designer who specializes in interactive & visual design - not to mention, damn good note taking during usability.
In a session All Things Open 2016 in Raleigh, NC, Erin shared specifics on how to spin up quick and inexpensive mobile usability tests that your entire team can watch in real time. She covered recruiting and schedule, streaming and recording, fielding real-time observations from the team, and turning around an analysis within hours or days instead of weeks. Attendees learned how, with a minimal upfront investment, their teams can fulfill the Agile/Lean vision of continuous, user-centered improvement.
Prior to joining Slide UX, Chad co-founded Smith & Robot, a creative technology agency building digital-first brands for ThoughtWorks and National Instruments. Prior to Smith & Robot, he was VP, Group Creative Director at T3. We were thrilled to announce that he joined the team in 2015. With his expertise, our capabilities expanded into brand development and concepting.

Since then, we've received requests to add a Photoshop CC file. We're happy to say the wait is over. Enjoy!
One step to any responsive web project is establishing the grid and breakpoints. But because Bootstrap describes its grid in dev-speak, UI designers who are using Bootstrap for the first time often find themselves asking, "What are the exact column dimensions of the Bootstrap grid?" Use our responsive grid templates for Sketch and Axure to start your next Boostrap project with certainty that your columns are right.
