How do you give feedback on design implementation to developers?

    I fix the CSS problems and ask the devs to merge or rebase my changes.

    But really it depends on the issue. I often fix things myself, but it is simply a misuse of a standard component from our design system I will point the dev to the documentation and show them where it differs to hopefully prevent the issue from occurring again and make the dev better at using the system.

      Wow! That's so cool when you as a designer can fix visual issues in implementation. It's quite rare actually.

      Are you working with web-only products or you have some mobile products as well? And if so how you approach issues if it's a mobile app, for example? Are you fixing some minor visual issues there as well?

        Yes primarily web apps, but we do have a React-Native app thats gets built for Android and iOS, so it still uses styling similar to CSS.

        However one issue with this approach is that I am essentially a full-time designer AND the full-time CSS guy. I think tech companies need to dedicate more resources to people who are specifically good at HTML and CSS and can work with designers.
