Some of you may have witnessed that we are planning to start hosting AMAs on GD.SE. Inspired from reddit, AMAs are basically interviews taking place between a (verified) guest and a community.

My post will be straight to the point: who would you like to have on an AMA here? I’m not necessarily looking for specific names obviously, but some more or less broad categories that you may be curious about and that may spark interesting questions. I’ll add a few of my own soon just to get things started. Obviously, there is no guarantee that we will be able to accomodate all suggestions but it's a first step.

We are looking forward to hear about what makes you tick!

Web Developers that implement graphic designs

  • 2
    I know from experience that sometimes graphic designers come up with designs that look amazing but are hard or near impossible to implement. It'd be interesting if we could pin down what to avoid when designing for web. – Dom Sep 16 at 9:06
  • Designers should never avoid things. The Developers need to figure out a way to make it a reality. – Ryan Sep 23 at 19:51
  • @Ryan the ultimate goal in business is profit; the designers need to deliver implementable (profitable) designs. If it's going to take 3 times as long to do something that doesn't add tangible value but looks a bit nicer then they're not very good for business. There's a limit to how much a nice/cool/awesome design can benefit a business. – Dom Sep 24 at 8:39
