Developer not following designer's design

    There is a saying... Assumption is the mother of all fuck ups.

    I would recommend getting a process in place where the designer and developer talk frequently throughout the project so they're both aware of what is planned to be built and how it will be accomplished. This means that the developer can prepare themselves & research the necessary dev libraries to ensure that everyone; both internally and externally are happy with the final product. The last thing you need is a design team not trusting the capabilities of the development team. This will also lower morale. A happy team is a productive team and this is achieved by not allowing people to assume functionality. Learn from this and see it as a communication break down and ensure that the right things are in place to not let it happen again.
