Designers vs. Developers – This Could Get Ugly…

Quick post to show an infographic from about developers vs. designers. Pretty funny, and bang on with the stereotypes.

Are you a designer or developer?

Designers, shouldn’t you be getting paid the same as developers? Come on, vent!

Have a go at the other guys in the comments.

    Thinking that developers and designers should relish the fact that they have such beautifully defined stereotypes.

    Hmmm … most of the designers and many of the coders know in the DC area are women – and they’re not afraid of anything! :)

    While I don’t have a stubby beard, I can’t argue with much else about the web designer stereotype (skinny jeans, macbook pro and font snob….for sure). But I’m not afraid of women (because I am one). However, I am kind of afraid of PC’s…and IE.

    I’m looking to create an infographic for my business and hope that it turns out to be just as successful.
