comment What are some good “mocking-up” practices in web design?
@DA01 well yeah in a startup, ad agency, or an excellent web team in a corporate environment should be striving for that. But yes I have had a few small projects where I outsourced our MVP. The devs were nice guys that knew how to code. But because I did not give detailed enough mockups, they had very opinionated designs where they reused bootstrap themes and stock assets. I learned my lesson since then. And now at least send a pdf that I build in keynote with the wireframe of the most important screens.

comment What are some good “mocking-up” practices in web design?
@DA01 I agree with "code sooner rather than later" however there has to be a certain milestone at which it begins. Such as finalizing certain key requirements. I too often see overly enthusiastic developers start coding a project and letting the coding shortcuts dictate the design which results in a product with a poor user experience. And sometimes the product manager or client will just want the project to keep moving for sake of time and budget while sacrificing what could have been a better design.

comment What are some good “mocking-up” practices in web design?
I don't think this really addresses the question from a design point of view. Though I do not disagree with you from a business perspective about getting to production fast. But if you get to production before validating the design, you will end up hurting the product or building something that no one wants.

comment What principles of whitespace were used in this email?
Though I can understand the actual math in this case. I am wondering how the proportions were calculated and the reasoning behind it so that those principles can be applied to other projects. For example, I am working on a header and used the Golden Mean. But for whitespace I am wondering about some of the best practices.
