    I think designers should learn to code, at leas to be able to develop the front-end of his / her design.

    I've seen a lot of great designs turned into monsters by frontend dev that had no ideea why white space, line height, font size are important. As a a full time ux / ui designer I always do my own html / css to be sure that does not happen. I learned how to code a while back and i can say it has a positive mark on all my designs ever since.

    Best.

      I think designers should understand the opportunities and limitations of code to collaborate better with developers. Not necessarily have to learn to program apps themselves unless they really really want to be a unicorn.

        For designers to understand the limitations of code they kinda need to learn at least the basic stuff.

        And the idea of collaborating better with developers i totally understand it and agree with it in cases where you are close to the development team like a agency job. When you do freelance jobs, most of the cases you don't even know who will build the website / app.
