Some people think that designers are artists. They just need to sit, imagine and draw great things coming out from their mind. Know code? Never, developers will take care of it. What do you think about that? Designers Know How To Code? Why Not?
In my opinion designers should know how to code code. This doesn’t mean designers should know how to build a website. They just need to understand the process to do that.
When designers start to about a little bit about code, they will understand the process how to build a website. They will find out how it is difficult, why it takes so much time to complete. The most important thing is that they will understand their partners – the developers more than before. This is the easiest way to overcome these problems long term to learn more about each other’s process.
Furthermore, if designers know how to code they can take and do a project themselves to have high income. But first, make sure that both skills are good. Because there are some designers insist on building the website themselves. So that 2 works are both not efficient, it takes more time and the quality is not good.
How to know about code?
There are some coding websites for beginner like Codecademy, Codecombat… learner can study through so many interesting lesson/games for FREE. Or ask developers directly to know more about the works they are doing.
In conclusion, keep learning something new, it will never be waste
