So, we have the long discussion about if interaction designers should know how to code. But what about visual design or GUI design?
A common team setup seems to pair a IxD guy with a graphic designer. The interaction designer creates the wireframes and hands them over to the visual designer. But if the interaction designer only focus on the functional aspect of the design and not so much on how the design should be visual experienced this approach doesn't give the visual designer enough room to explore a more visual dynamic or emotional driven layout.
I can see the benefit of this approach when you designing an application but when you design for example an online magazine the result gets too "appy". What's your take on the question.
