Barnaby 05 December 2011 “The responsive projects I’ve worked on have had a lot of success combining design and development into one hybrid phase, bringing the two teams into one highly collaborative group.” It had actually never occurred to me (as a 16 year old generalist who’s never worked with any other designer/developer) that design and development wouldn’t be done at the same time, especially for a responsive website. The idea of a “designer” who comes up with a purely visual design then hands it to a ‘developer’ who makes it is repulsive to me. How does that make sense? Surely a ‘designer’ should not only be putting together the visual aspect, but also helping to build and oversee the overall look and feel of the site? Great article — I didn’t realise people didn’t do what you’re suggesting!
