As both a frontend developer and a designer I get a lot of opportunities to see the connection between designs and how they work. While working on designs, I already have an idea about how they could be implemented. Modern design tools integrate these things by showing code snippets and previews to further integrate the processes. Having experience in both helps me with my work and I’m grateful to work with experts on both sides.

UX and Design Integration

When speaking about User Experience (UX) in the digital space, we normally refer to the creation of online products or spaces that give a user a more relevant and meaningful experience.

Web Design Trends: What to expect in 2018

Exploring current design trends is a vital part of any designer’s role, at least that’s what most good designers believe. Unsurprisingly, most designers love to judge the work of their fellow creatives, by comparing their projects to current design trends showcased online. Naturally, this can be a little daunting as no red-blooded, Sketch-loving, PC-allergic designer wants to be seen as unfashionable or, heaven forbid, obsolete!

The Frontend Conference is described as a platform for Swiss and European researchers, developers and designers to present their projects and latest technologies in the digital realm.

As I walked into the old paper factory venue, Alte Papierfabrik - Sihlcity Zurich, I was delighted to be walking into what I know now to be so much more than just a presentation platform.
