Excerpt from an Andrew Norcross article on how designers and developers might understand each other (and thus work together) better:

I like how Tim Brown linked to the article:

Developers are your prepress folks.

Before I was in web, I was prepress for many years. I think there is a ton of overlap between the jobs. One takes designs and gets them ready for print. One takes designs and gets them ready for the web.
