Patrick McNeil wrapped up his Web Design for Beginners series of DesignCasts today with a session focusing on the benefits of learning to code, and how to build good relationships with a development team.
More and more, designers are expected to have basic coding knowledge. If you know how your design will come to life on the web, and you can plan for and prepare your designs accordingly, you have the greatest chance of preserving the integrity of those designs once you hand them off to a developer.
Patrick’s top five things to keep in mind when working with a development team are:
- Be organized.
- Be finished with your work.
- Don’t disappear.
- Use a grid system.
- Be on time.
