I'm currently a graphic design student with an interest in web design. I am researching the "designer-developer" relationship and how it's evolved since the 1990's when the interaction between the two professions was fairly new.

Is working with a designer difficult? How can the relationship/interaction between the two professionals be improved (if necessary)?

If you could fill out this survey, I would more than grateful.
