This blog post got me thinking about how this same dynamic might play out at ye olde Missourian. We’re already seeing a bit of this in the (very, very preliminary) feedback we’re getting from our advanced designers as they look at Web redesigns.
Here’s the crux of the issue, I think (errors in original): “It seems that designers are under pressure to design an exceptional and unique experience and developers are under presssure to produce sites with high performance and little/no errors. Designer’s goals add pressure to developers and vice versa. How can our goals work together intead of causing pressure on each other?”
