Sometimes the relationship between designers and developers can feel like an epic battle of wills. It's only once these superheros align forces that the path to victory becomes clear.

Ensuring that your team of developers and designers have an effective process in place that turns design files into digital masterpieces is key to any web design build. Otherwise, and as many of us have experience, the road can be a bumpy one. 

In this next and final portion of the Creative+ series, we will discuss how the synergy between creative design and development works, why it is paramount to the ultimate success of a website, and provide you with a few fundamental steps to implement as you get started.

Over the course of this one-hour webinar, we’ll explore how to:

  • Improve communication between design and dev team members
  • Best practices for workflow and deliverables
  • Dispel common myths about designer vs developer
