Designers and developers are often at odds with one another. Designers want to make beautiful, aesthetically pleasing websites that don’t work well on different browsers or mobile devices. Developers want to create code that is clean and easy for other developers to understand.
This blog post will teach you some strategies for bridging the gap between design and development so your website can be visually appealing and functional on any device!
For instance, a developer can’t pick up design skills from using Photoshop or Sketch every day. They’re tools for designers and should be used by them! Likewise, a designer can’t sit down at their computer with front end development in mind and think they’ll come out on top because of all the coding experience they have picked up from designing.
Designers and developers should work together to solve problems. They each have their own strengths, which can be combined when working on a project as they bring something different to the table!
However, we’ve all been there: designers who think that fixing some code is easy; or front end devs who don’t know how to design.
Designers should be using tools that suit their needs and know how to use them well, like Sketch or Figma, for example, not Photoshop. Also, they can take a look at other designers’ work and see what they’re doing to get inspired!
Developers should be able to work with a design and understand the difference. They can do this by using tools like InVision or Marvel to put their front-end skills into practice!
They should also take inspiration from other developers who reinvent well-known designs in creative ways. For example, examples include iOS 11’s new re-designed App Store and Slack’s new strategy.
By working together (like they should be!), designers can create better user experiences by having developers implement their designs with the latest technology available, like ARKit or React Native. Developers will also understand what is feasible when designing – which elements are necessary to make the design function.
“Pixel Perfect” culture is all about creating pixel-perfect mockups, comps and fully baked visual designs.
The first thing usually thought is that there needs to be communication between them. Of course, this can cause problems if not handled properly, but this does not mean freelancers working on their own should avoid having other designers and developers look at each project they work on.
There are many benefits to having multiple eyes on a design or web development project, including an opportunity for new ideas. It also allows you to see what works and what does not work for the people who are working with your designs or code. Having another set of eyes look at something is always beneficial somehow. Still, there are some things to keep in mind when working with designers and developers.
When development meets design, the result is a beautiful product. But, sometimes, there are communication gaps between designers and developers during this process.
Here are a few challenges they face and some tips on how to work through them.
Designers and developers often have different ways of thinking about design. They will need to bridge the gap to work together effectively, but it’s not always easy or intuitive. We hope this article has given you some insights into how each side thinks so that you can better understand their perspective when working with them on projects.
