But the truth of the matter takes some of the fun out of it. I’ve often used the building contractor/architect/interior designer analogy when explaining why I can’t and won’t do back-end coding. I tell people that request this to think of me as the interior designer who comes into a newly-built house and puts in Persian carpets and pretty paint colors and damask curtains. When what he really needs is a plumber or an electrician.
But this guy gets it right in this humorous piece, “If Architects Had to Work Like Web Designers”! Now, if I could just find a way to get my prospective web design clients to understand this!
