As I already have mentioned earlier in our Blog - there are programmers and designer. Sometimes you are lucky anough to meet someone who can claim membership to both but to be honest - that doesn´t happen very often, eh?!
Most people I know tried to be equally gifted but to be honest again - most of them failed.
Unfortunately even for designated programmers, there is no way around it, you have to face at least a few design issues in order to work closely to the clients ideas.
One specific tool is of great help when it comes to designing programmers: Blueprint CSS and open source CSS Frameworks.
It helps the design-blind programmer among other things to remover stylization problems when using different Browsers, it supplies typographic defaults and defines typographic baselines, and many more.
A Solution for our blindness?! What do you think?!
The discussion will continue. Stay tuned or find me "Michael Zwiener" on linkedIn.
