Ask DN: Is your work "assigned" by developers?
over 8 years ago from Tori Z, Designer @ SAP
Hi all. I'm a student designer currently doing an internship. Here's what I feel confused about my work, and I hope to get answer from fellow designers.
So I'm working as designer to develop a software, which is like a collaborative tool. All my work are "assigned" by developers. For example, some developer wants a button on this page, then he'll email me to design this button.
Same thing happens on my another project. My client sent me this interface, said he want me to redesign part of the page. I then send him my drafts with different ideas. Then I get his email back which he says "developers have specific things in ming..." and ask me to do another draft based on "developer's draft".
For both projects, I'm fairly confused. I was hoping I can have more input to the product, but seems like I am now allowed to say anything about the design. I'm just the photoshop guy, that's all. And even I get a good pay, I'm still not happy. I was looking forward to do more.
Is this how most designers work?
