Podcast 339: Where design meets development at Stack Overflow
We chat with David Longworth, director of brand design at Stack Overflow, about the work we’ve been doing to reshape our company and product pages. David has worked across client services, branding, media, and advertising – but always with a digital-first focus. He is mostly front-end focused but has used Node.js for various back-end duties over the years.
David helps us understand where great designers fit on web companies these days, somewhere between front-of-the-front-end and back-of-the-front-end.
Right now a lot of projects have to be maintained in multiple places – one for marketing, one for design, one for development. David shares thoughts on how to combine workspaces and where design systems can be integrated with tools.
