The War Between Developers, Designers and Project Managers

by Joey deVilla on August 3, 2011

The war’s been escalated: Richard Walker has a graphic that adds QA to the mix!

The War Between Developers, Designers and Project Managers: A grid of photographs showing how each sees the others.

It’s funny because it’s true. Apparently this graphic was first done in French and then translated by Alex Toulemonde.

For something similar, check out an earlier entry of mine: How Fanboys See Operating Systems.

That was to the point and full of humor.
But when I consider it a little bit more I think that we can’t live without the others.
So we have to cooperate and make sure that this is for the benefit of us all and not only for the boss-stock.

The developer as seen by designers is spot on! For high ranking developers that is.
