  • Traditional Methods •  Direct  Developer/Designer  collabora@on  does  not  have  a   significant  role  in  the  development  process.     •  Designers/Developers  oCen  in  different  departments.   •  Designers  rarely  have  the  same  aFachment  to  full  product   lifecycle.    
  • Designer Takes the Lead •  UI  for  a  site/app  developed  by  a   designer  in  isola@on.     •  The  result  is  passed  to  developers   to  implement.   •  Rarely  looks/func@ons  as  intended   •  Misses  out  on  technology   opportuni@es  
  • Developer Takes the Lead•  Developer  creates  ini@al  UI.  •  Asks  the  designer  to  make  it  look   preFy,  create  fancy  buFons,  etc.  •  Designers  not  being  used  to  full   poten@al    •  Designer  does  not  have  equal   aFachment  to  end  product

  • The Challenges•  Designs  do  not  take  advantage  of  technology.    •  Implementa@on  may  not  be  the  way  designer  intended  it.    •  More  and  more  design  relies  on  implementa@on  (HTML5,   CSS3,  mobile  APIs,  etc)
