    Thanks for commenting Web Designer! While I do think you're absolutely right when it comes to creating a cohesive user experience and I definitely see an overlap in duties being a common occurrence, I believe that on a whole, web developers approach and work through projects in an entirely different mindset than a web designers. Granted, their end goal remains the same - creating fantastic looking web and mobile applications that are engaging and easy to use.

    I personally believe that the responsibilities and duties of web design and development are so similar that they overlap at times because it is all about creating a cohesive experience for the user. Nice post
