Designers & Developers: Friends With Benefits?

The designers are creative, the developers are talented, so why are you miserable all the time? It seems you need some relationship help, so your projects can get the attention they deserve!

In this high-energy talk focused on developers, Lemon shares a framework for effective and respectful communication between development and design teams, making sure that everyone feels appreciated and confident to provide suggestions in good faith. We’ll talk about the shifting power structure between these roles thru the lifecycle of a website, from the pitch all the way up to launch, and how every member of the team can stay engaged and feel heard at every step.

And as a bonus, we’re going to talk about the things you can do (and things you definitely *shouldn’t do*) to impress a client.

Does things to the internet. The internet does things to him as well.

With a day job as the development lead for a mid-sized Minneapolis agency, Lemon spends his work time making websites for money and his free time making websites for no money.

He's created a number of stupid things for the internet, like all the games on kinda.fun, the wikiHow game damn.dog, the Google Autocomplete game idiots.win, and a bunch of other things of questionable use. He also hosts a podcast that looks at some of the internet's weirder subcultures. It is not safe for your work, unless you work somewhere really cool.
