Designers expect developers to understand UX and developers expect designers to understand the technicalities of their platform. The back and forth of this is embodied by the dreaded hand-off.

Current tooling already makes the hand-off simpler and quicker. But, it also requires one role to know more about the other. Are the roles slowly fusing into a new one, ‘the devsigner’?

Allard an Raja will take you on a journey in their quest to eradicate the hand-off. What would a hand-off look like if there wasn’t one? What if a designer could influence production code? What if a developer could iterate the way a designer does? Is the future really that far away?
