    It's all Semantics. Definitions.

    The way I see it: "Full Stack Designer" - A Designer that can single-handedly do everything needed from ideation to product in user hands.

    That means all the way up to coding the design, and putting it on the interwebs for people to use it.

    Today, this doesn't mean such a designer needs to know how configure nginx since you have github.io for static websites and heroku for dynamic sites. So if the designer knows how to use them, that qualifies them as "full stack". In the same way that 10 years ago to code a responsive website one needed to know all the ins-and-outs of CSS while today you just use Bootstrap.

    But this definition is open for discussion, as evidence by this thread :)

    P.S My definition is probably inspired by Chris Dixon's definition of a "Full Stack Startup"
