The process of becoming a designer and developer can be excruciating and quite exhausting. Each of these fields has such a depth of study with a lot to earn. And becoming proficient in just design or development can be hard enough. Often times it is easier to pair up and work with a designer/developer for your own projects.
But what are the easiest methods for handling such a relationship? I want to share just a few ideas on how designers and developers can work best together. If each person at least has an understanding of what the other needs to do, it will become a much simpler experience. These two job types should be guiding each other down the path towards creating a wonderful final product.

But, too many? I’m not so sure. There can be no doubt that there’s a growing and very active online design community. Despite the number of designers online, I think that a good designer can still succeed.
In this post, I’ll discuss the crowded design market and explain why I think there’s still room in the marketplace for good designers. If you enjoyed this post, you may also like this post, Are There Too Many Freelancers?
