    Brilliant post, friend! I can honestly say that you’re one of the best team players I’ve ever met, and I believe it comes from this ability you have to really understand and respect what other people’s feelings and priorities are. Would love to continue this discussion in the future!

    “Even though in reality, the developer probably knows that your solution is a better one for the user…”

    Unfortunately, with a lot of the designers I’ve worked with, that hasn’t been the case. There’s a load of designers out there who, artistically, can create absolutely beautiful-looking comps that fail every measure of User Experience possible.

    I didn’t go to art school so I don’t know what a typical designer’s training is, but there seems to be a massive failure to instruct usability and psychology alongside the artistic training.

      Good point indeed! Unfortunately most people think that visual designers are UX designers and vice versa. I couldn’t agree more with your insight on this. I also didn’t go to art school but I believe I’m a typical designer for example, which is one reason I think that organizations need to realize the importance of having both! Oooooo! new blog post idea!!
