Developer not following designer's design

    This designer–developer relationship is something of huge interest to me. It’s a little shameless, so I apologise, but I recently gave a talk on exactly this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldx4ZFxMEeo&hd=1

    I think there is a healthy balance that needs to be reached: I don’t think developers should have to build a site exactly as the PSD just because ‘that’s what the designer wanted’, but I do think that any alterations the developer does wish to make should be fully discussed and agreed upon by all involved parties.

    It’s an interesting one, and I’m sure it shall continue to happen, but I do wish people were more transparent about how they wish to work.
