Do you design in the browser?

    I work in a team setting that where clients expect a process or method. We've tried a handful of things but end up showing them something visual before we present code. Usually we get buy-in then we move to the browser where design and developer works together. A lot of times I will work in the inspector to make adjustments and just screen grab and tell dev's 'make it look like this.'

    Clients still need photoshop mockups to feel secure and some devs don't have a strong enough design eye so they also benefit from the mockups as well. I feel that some sort of mockup is important to make everyone feel secure. Once you do that and build trust you can zero in on features to make them better using a hybrid of code and mockups. Just don't let people look at the mockup as the end all be all. Open collaboration and understanding is key.
