Code can be beautiful.
|To design the “pretty” you must architect the code. Read More|
One question I often have as a student at design school is “how much of web is design and how much is code?” We are taught the ins and outs of design and how to develop our information architecture effectively. We are expected to pick up on the code needed along the way. It is a challenge to be the designer and the developer, but in order to complete the tasks at hand one must be familiar with both.
So which comes first the chicken or the egg? The code or the design? These feats have been faced in many ways and you can only eat the elephant one bite at a time. If you are lucky you will work with a back end developer and have the opportunity to just focus on all the “pretty”. But if you pick up the right knowledge along the way you will be amazed at what beauty can be accomplished through code. Code is an art within itself.
