Having received alignment from all stakeholders on the team on this direction, I proceed to move into handoff with the lead developer. My role here was to spec & document the existing design for build. While the need for user test and validation was advocated for it was unfortunately not feasible under the tight constraints typical with early-stage startups. In my process, is used Figma mirror as a way to help "self-test" my prototypes and understand how it performs on an actual mobile device.For handoff
I rebuilt the design following the atomic design framework
. Creating & spec-ing out components for header panels, user avatars, icons, tags, image panel, etc. I also used this process to address further details and edge-cases like text truncation limits, overflow behavior, comment section expansion and the desktop behavior for these components.
