The main takeaway is that developers should not hesitate to reach out to designers. Play hot potato with the designs. Give feedback! Receive feedback. It can be hard to find the time when there’s code to write, but it’s always worth it.
Designers, you may have to push developers to get them to do this. It certainly doesn’t come naturally for me. At my new job at Granular, my entire focus for the first three months has been learning React. This means I don’t know the designers at my company very well yet! 😳
After listening back to this interview, I’m definitely going to make a better effort to reach out to my design team for that sweet sweet collaboration.
