A Guide To Hassle-Free Designer-Developer Collaboration

LIVE on Thursday 27 Jan 2022 at 4 PM UTC, Master Class Webinar with Szymon Adamiak

Designers and developers share a common goal — to do what’s best for the user and for the business. But the day-to-day realities of their collaboration aren’t so clear-cut and idyllic.

Ask any designer or developer and they’ll tell you of bad experiences they had working with “the other side”. So let’s face it: when designers and developers work together, conflicts, friction and mutual struggles do occur. But why does this happen, and what can you do to mitigate them?

While there’s no single solution, surprisingly simple things like improved processes, diligent practices and empathetic communication can go a long way in improving collaboration.

To help you collaborate better with your team, the Interaction Design Foundation is hosting a LIVE Master Class webinar with Szymon Adamiak of Hype4. Join us on Thursday, 27 January 2022 at 4:00 PM UTC to learn practical tips for smooth designer-developer relationships.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to communicate better — whether you’re a designer or a developer
  • The questions developers want to ask designers (but rarely do)
  • The questions designers want to ask developers (but rarely do)
  • Best practices for file handoff, naming conventions, exporting, responsive design, viewports and more
  • How to define and communicate priorities and ease of implementation
  • How and when to involve developers in the design process
  • What designers can provide to speed up development

Whether you’re a designer or a developer, with these learnings, you can approach the dev-design hand-off with more confidence and positivity. Not only will applying these strategies help you and your colleagues face fewer problems in the collaboration process, but you’ll succeed in earning the admiration and respect of colleagues even in the other team.
