Why it's hard to stick the landing with design execution and what we might do about it.
Loved this article/call-out. So legit. There is a Chrome plugin called "VisBug" that a very talented developer I used to work with (and who now works at Google) created to try to help bridge this gap. I haven't used it in a professional setting, only have played around with it. Maybe worth a look? idk. It could be a thing.... Another thought: this makes the role of "UX Engineer" so important and needed. You NEED at least one hyper-UI-minded front-end dev on the product team to own the implementation of the UI and to ensure proper compliance with any existing design system. It makes me want to expand my code knowledge and transition from designer to UX Engineer on the product team since this role is so greatly needed and honestly seems like a satisfying role to have at this point in time.
