1 clients needs, 2 UX, 3 get homepage and brand guidelines approved, 4 design out desktop homepage options with mobile in mind, 5 design out secondary pages, 6 prototype out desktop pages in invision, 7 hand off psd files to coders and start designing mobile based off desktop pages. In some instinces I have designed out mobile first it just depends on what the client wants.
DESIGNING SECONDARY PAGES
Once the homepage option was approved and selected by the client I designed out 11 more secondary pages based off site wires. After the Secondary pages are approved I then designed out mobile. Desktop pages are thought through, so when getting to mobile everything responds smoothly.
