The Holy Trinity of Dev & Design Collaboration
argodesign, a product design consultancy working around the globe, was just digging into the development of a visualization tool for DreamWorks when COVID-19 hit. Knowing we’d have to collaborate remotely between Austin, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and Kiev, the team designed a collaboration process that could work across 11 time zones. A robust and confident combination of Jira, Figma, and Storybook made it all possible, providing an operating system for our design, a QA and documentation resource for development, and guaranteeing a single source of truth between both. We now have a tightly integrated process between these entities and the live app, setting us up with a strong foundation and framework as we begin even more projects within DreamWorks.

- How to keep a remote team of designers & developers in sync, managing changes & QA through a single backlog.
- How to keep a client engaged and invested, without giving in to the desire to create a “screen first” approach.
- How to adhere to an incredibly high degree of precision, both in the design and development, while spread out across the world.
