Welcome to Designer vs. Developer, a show that tries to solve the challenges faced in industry by opening a conversation between the two, providing take aways, solutions to workflows, tools & discussions on everyday struggles.

In this episode Mustafa Kurtuldu speaks to Jake Archibald about communication and the assumption that designers and developers sole role is to either make things look pretty or to be a cog in a machine with no soul.

I wonder what it would be like to only work by assembling tried-and-true building blocks, and having a team painstakingly experiment to create new building blocks, one at a time… and stay away from mixing the 2 activities.

I've done a bit of freelance at #Google (maybe before these guys were born – lol) – and I was shocked at how UNSOPHISTICATED Google was/is in the #Design process. These, errm, rows bxn #designer/#engineer (to use an old Ford motor company juxtaposition) are age old. Form follows function is the surviving constant in this equation. There will ALWAYS be THREE types working in this sphere: the #DESIGN only type. The #Engineer only type – and the #HYBRID type – who can easily work w both "sides of the brain" if you like.

The missing person in that conversation is: client/product owner/boss/marketing executive

Change is something that we have embrace. Somethings things are never done – done. Its part of working on living products I guess 🙂

I don't know, I builded two wordpress sites recently and keeping up with updates plus the added work of apply new designs is quite overwhelming.If design changes didn't replace past work, that would be awesome, but I guess that's how this bussines is.

Absolutely, I guess what we are trying to say is 'be more inclusive rather than defensive', which sounds obvious I know but sometimes can be hard to do.

+1 Lets not treat software product development like a conveyor belt. I much prefer to be included in more aspects of the product than just my specialty.

Absolutely! I have found some of the best insight into design has come from other places.

Good one and much-needed video series. We're in it together, but sometimes it feels like we're on opposite sides.

@ Mustafa,Very good podcast idea, congratulations. I do wish, however, that, at least in the descriptions if not the introductions, you described the actual roles in slightly more depth (i.e., is Jake front-end or back-end?; are you a digital or graphic designer?) in order to give the interviews more context.Thanks.
