We're developers who partner up with a graphic design studio for our project artworks. Some times they even bring in the clients themselves and we both cooperate to get a development project done.
They develop the website artwork, develop the sketch ups for the client to decide etc.
We develop the website(code it and the rest of the technical stuff).
They have recently asked me to recommend them some good resources to read on the subject as they no longer want to design only for desktops. I have told them there are plenty floating around on the Internet, some paid and some not.
Can you recommend some good resources(paid or free) for non-coders (such as graphics designers), to learn about responsive design, how to design assets for responsive design, how to develop sketch ups/wireframes for the customers, how grid works etc?
They basically want to be able to provide sketch-ups to customers for each device, how the grid will break on different devices, how to design their assets/artwork etc. It's a matter of cutting us out of the loop and design on their own the whole project, then deliver the wireframes to us and the artwork and we could easily take it from there.
- Online courses are ideal.
- Short books ?
- Maybe interactive courses like what Codecademy does for programming?
- Anything else you think will help non-coders to get the basics
