Am i a Designer or Developer?

I’ve run a gamut of “creative” job titles: Interaction Designer, Webmaster, Digital Media Designer, Front-end Developer, Marketing Assistant… yada yada. In my earlier years, I was much more of a “classic” designer. I created moodboards, banner ads, and web mockups; but I didn’t dive into anything further. Nowadays, I’ve learned that I actually prefer to be in the thick of it, especially if it’s front-end coding!

I’ve now landed on developer by day and designer by night as the most accurate—or, least inaccurate—description of my day-to-day.

Okay, cool. What the hell does that mean.

Alright, well, fine. I guess my work is typically translating the design of a website or web app into a CMS. If the scale is smaller, I may even be creating the aforementioned design. Otherwise, I’m implementing all of the code you interact with by hand. You see, wireframes, UI kits, mockups, style guides; they all need to be carefully considered as they go from “cool” mockups to actual, living projects in the world. Hand coding , rather than “no code” website solutions, is the only way to achieve a really beautiful web app/site.

I typically talk through the typography, color schemes, and layouts with the designers (or myself), and then code for a twig-based CMS. I’m also at my best when on a team, which is why I’m insanely happy to be a part of the Mighty team.

…I’m still not getting it

Yeah, I hear you man. Me either.
