Point of view


Cherish the designer–developer relationship

At Antistatique, we are lucky to be all seated side by side in the same room: project managers, designers, developers, business managers, etc.

That means the context is perfect for reviews and discussion. We regularly discuss the optimal balance of those reviews. What kind of review, how long is too long, when to involve whom, what information is required to be shared. Our duty is to pass along our deliverables the best way possible and make sure we are available for lingering questions and follow-up… Yet time and budget are part of the equation.

Another key aspect of this relationship is communication. Developers here keep track of tasks on GitHub. But we didn't find a way (yet) to make it a good communication channel for us designers (and project managers). Like it is not obvious for a developer to browse through all screens and mockups on Miro or Figma and catch the meaningful information.

And you, what are the topic you discuss with tech teams?
