    Thank you! It should because I removed my phone number on profile. Now I re-added it and would you like to have a retry?

  • Posted to Ask DN: where's the line between designer, engineer, and developer?, Jul 06, 2016

    Let's try defining the concept "design" this way:

    For each part of a business, it's about a design and an implementation.

    1. Company's design: a business plan. Workers' implementation: A whole product that meets business goals.
    2. Product manager's design: the market researches and the resulting product design (user stories, navigation logics, etc). The implemention:

    Think of this:

    [ Business goals, [ Macro product design, [ Micro interaction design, [ visual design, [ Front-end technical architecture, Front-end implementation ]]]]]

    A paired [] contains a pair of elements, the former is the design and the latter is the implementation. This model is very simplified; in reality, there should be designs that each corresponds to multiple implementation (e.g. apps for multiple platforms)

    In this model you find it difficult to define "designer" properly, as long as almost every part can be separated into the design part and the implementation part.

    Probably we have to abandon the old school idea of distinguishing designers and engineers, and find a better way to organize the responsibilities within a business.

    Yeah thank you! But the "combine with" feature may cost incredibly amount of time and effort to make due to the data quantity, and hardly automatable...

    Whitney is way better than Gotham in terms of web readability. A great move forward.

    Hello guys! This is my first post on DN. I'd be glad to see somebody like it : )

    We designers have been adding donation links on our websites, asking for a cup of coffee, but I think I should do something similar yet in a different way. So here it is: a page that recommends the types I love and I wish the types be with you, and in return I get some money from the affiliate program.

    Tell me if you like this approach; thanks for your appreciation. It's not a hard job to implement one form scratch by one's own, but I'll open source the code for the community if needed.

    Shameless self-recommending is here. Wish nobody dislike it. And sorry for missing my favorites due to not being satisfied by most blogs.
