That isn’t what I’m suggesting, just suggesting if you’re constantly imitating, you’re not really improving whether you design or code.

My reasoning for a designer to have an understanding of how a website is coded is just so they can design with those restraints in mind. I’m not saying they need to know how to code a perfectly semantic site, every vendor prefix, ect.

I also think it goes both ways, if you primarily code, I think you should also learn a bit about the design aspect of it as well as not every little design element will be laid out for you on every page and sometimes you’ll have to make design decisions (at least in my experience).
