As a Web Design & Development with an industry leading design team, Dmag Marketing ensures all its departments work in total harmony with one another. Here’s how the web team do it:
The Designer and the Developer
The developer, in many job roles, can also be a programmer. We don’t want to get the two roles confused because being a programmer, you’re more likely to deal with WordPress and all that back-end goodness. The developer we’re talking about is part of the “web team” and its main purpose will be to translate a picture into a magical front-end product.
A good designer has an established eye for design, a great designer has that, and understands how a Responsive Web Design will be implemented in code.
A good developer knows the ins and outs of CSS pseudo styling and backend technology, a great developer understands the importance of basic design principles.
Find a Work Process that Suits you
Collaborating with each other
Designer and developer will be able to give specific points on a design and work approach, so it is important to listen to each other at every step of the process. A developer can check over the wireframes a designer has put together before it is sent off to the client. Similarly, a designer can recommend a development technique that possibly already exists to make the developer’s life easier with understanding the direction you want to take.
Don’t Skip Quality Control
When the project is in its lifespan, the back and forth between designer and developer should be a frequent and consistent occurrence. Sometimes the developer will misinterpret a design feature or colour and the designer will have the opportunity to correct that. It can also happen that the designer has an inconsistency in their design making the developer job overly complicated. The developer may find that it needs correcting so this is a good chance to touch base with the designer and make them aware of the mistake. It could prevent future design mistakes that may take long to correct at a later date.
