Every so often an old argument appears on Twitter, 'Should web designers be able to code?' The answer is nearly always a resounding 'yes' from the web community. But I disagree.

Before people start searching for their pitchforks and flaming torches, I want to make it clear that I don’t work exclusively with designers that can’t code. I always make my decision on a project-by-project basis. Some projects do need to have a designer involved that understands exactly what can and can’t be done. Some don’t. This is just my opinion on why I like working with designers who can’t code.
