Thank you so much for making this. I completely agree with everything you
said! Occasionally I receive a comment from someone claiming that I am not
a web designer simply because I do not “hand code” my websites. I primarily
use Squarespace and WordPress to build websites. As far as I can tell, the
software is a set of tools. What you do with those tools is what makes you
a web designer. And let’s face it, not everyone is capable of building
something that looks nice. It’s a skill that is learned through practice
and experience.

I did watch the video before commentating ;) and I did enjoy it, I don’t
agree with a lot that you said though, but then as you said, you were
asking for it. Dude a Web Designer who doesn’t know at least HTML and a bit
of CSS is just lazy. HTML you can pick up within weeks and CSS basics a few
weeks.I’m not saying they have to know CSS3/Javascript/PHP but at least
make an effort. I do think there is a difference but there should be some
overlap. When you said hire an artist, do you mean a normal artist, because
I used to be an artist and a coder but I couldn’t design for toffee until
the last few years. On the other hand I think Developer should learn a
little about aesthetics, colour theory that you use in art just doesn’t cut
in in web design.

i 100% agree in this video.. +Roberto Blake

However, do you use Notepad? or the Notepad++

yes but no i know several web designers that would disagree but because i
asked them the same question when it comes to wordpress and squarespace not
saying that i would disagree but i’m not a web designer and when i got my
webpage up and going i had people doing it by writng it instead of point
and click because everything i wanted in couldn’t be done by point and
clicking on wordpress or squarespace

Me too! I’d start with and end with , working straight
through. I literally thought in code – and this was back in the mid to late
1990s. I was lucky because I was working as a designer specializing in
games and retail packaging, so I also thought in ‘art’ as I coded pages.
Frames were the big thing back then – second generation web design – and I
visualized page design as I created the first draft. Then the fun started –
creating backgrounds, floating text, gif animations, icons, and a
navigation scheme – all that archaic stuff. A little editing and the page
usually came together pretty quickly. I never learned to use Dreamweaver,
in part because I felt more comfortable with a minimum of code and
eyecandy, and a maximum of white space, elegance, and easy user interface,
and in part because the simpler your code, the easier it is to troubleshoot
and fix. I was a typical micromanaging, control-freak designer!

That was an excellent explanation. I embarked on a project with my friend
who is programmer. We are working on a social media site where I do
front-end design and html and he does backend coding to make it functional
and bring it online. Recently, I wondered what bootstrap was about, and I
discovered its really a resource for coders who are not fluent designers.
It gives them a neat and complete set of css rules to work with. Overall, I
totally agree with Roberto! No matter what you are comfortable doing, don’t
be discouraged by the other side. Be objective and open-minded towards
other areas because it helps you to be marketable. IE; Get a job! If only
more of the students in my program would understand this.

Nothing wrong with note pad… I still do use it to code… but I am a
designer… lol

Both are very hard ive tried coding and wow thats more then i wanted to see
haha.

Roberto Blake you are saying that web designers focus on the layout of the
website. coders only focus on the function of the website.
If the coder also has background in graphic design they can implement both
of these skills and vice versa +Roberto Blake

I agree completely 

01.07.15

I agree 100

Great video!

This video is intense! You really drive home some “Good” ideology. Great
food for thought thanks!

I agree with you as a coder and aspiring designer!
Don’t you think that apps like Muse kind of drive you in a certain
direction and you would be better of hand coding stuff rather then giving
up the design and do what the app lets you to do?

I still use notepad to code and I hate WYSIWYGs…one will always need to
hand code to fix what WYSIWYGS can’t. 

01.07.15

I like to code, and I agree with your video. Coders need to become more
design savvy.

Great explanation. I’ve seen a lot of web designers say they are
programmers. I just tell a web designer to create an application to track
temperatures. Then they will get the hint.

01.07.15

Both programming and designing are arts. So all that mumbo jumbo about
“knowing your stuff” about web design is useless. However, I’d also like to
consider that all web application developers were “web designers” at one
point in time, when they had to actually display the information on the
page. Whether it looked horrible or premium quality, web design is knowing
how to style a page, while programming is taking user input, doing
something with that, and responding accordingly.

Great video!!!! Just had this debate with a high school student of mine!
