    Awesome write-up Jess! I've been looking for a phrase like "Design QA" to describe this process, naming something is a key step in making it important. Totally agree that it's a key part of the product development process. In case you're interested, I'm actually a founder at Pastel - our whole thing is we're trying to make Design QA for web products way simpler. Would love to get your thoughts on what we're doing. :)

      Hi, Haneef! Thank you! I'm glad you like the phrase "Design QA." I like it as well, especially better than phrases like "Design Review" as it sounds a bit more formal and part of the overall product development process.

      I've seen Pastel but haven't used it yet; it looks like a great product! I have used Redpen.io for years now. What's the advantage to using Pastel instead?

      Thanks!

        Thank you! Agreed that "Design QA" somehow seems more legit than "Design Review". Redpen.io is really awesome, and we're not (currently) direct competitors. Where Redpen is great for doing Design QA on image-based wireframes and mockups, Pastel really shines when doing QA on the actual website.
