Just thought I’d introduce myself to some fellow Rails users.
I’m a Web Designer based in Glasgow, Scotland and have over 6 years
industry experience as a Senior Designer, having previously worked for
a graphic design agency before becoming freelance early this year.
During that time I worked on many Rails projects. What role a designer
has in a Rails project seems to vary greatly according to some of the
designers and programmers posts i read. However I can assure you I
don’t just create the pretty graphics and send my developer a layered
photoshop file. I get involved with everything from scoping and
specification, design, building standards compliant HTML and CSS,
integrating the HTML and CSS into the Rails environment while keeping
everything neat and tidy between me and the team with SVN.
