It's time to close the design-development gap

As designers, we hate it when our work gets diluted during development. You know the situation: a finished design looks amazing, but somewhere between handover and deployment, something goes wrong. Whether it's a design detail getting lost in translation or the cumulative effect of multiple client revisions, somewhere along the line the result changes from portfolio highlight to same-old-same-old.

This is why code-based design is such a godsend for us designers… and for engineers for that matter, too. In this article, we take closer look at code-based design. Read on to discover how it can keep your designs current, make your output more efficient, and equip you with a skill that is attractive to employers.
