Designers vs Developers: Who is in control here?

The designers are creative, the developers are talented, so why are you miserable all the time? The project is a mess, there’s about a hundred tickets about the whitespace between items, and everybody is mad at each other because we’re behind schedule. How did it get like this, and how can we fix it?

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.

This is a talk for developers who struggle to collaborate with the designers at their workplace, it’s borne from many years of designer/developer collaboration in an agency environment. It’s fun and high-energy and focused on defining helpful parameters to build a respectful and collaborative work environment.
