• Using the Foundry's A/B stack to make the hard design decisions

Time to read: 1 minute

We, as website designers and developers can sometimes be an indecisive bunch. And even when we do decide on a direction or design right off the bat, we sometimes have to bend to the will of our clients. So when we're building pages we often come up with multiple layouts and designs to see what might work best for ourselves and our clients.

In the process of building different layouts and designs to see what works best we end up deleting some works in progress, only to find those were the gems that we end up liking and have to rebuild them from scratch.

The A/B Test stack allows up to create two different layouts and then toggle between them to see how they work with the rest of the page, or site. This is great for helping us as designers to settle on a design. It can also aid us if we have local clients that come to our office so that we can show them two different directions we could take with their site.

In this video we take a look at the A/B Test stack to see how it works and how it can help us in building our sites:
