Can creative designers also be exemplary coders?

VAh, now that is a great question. I was asked this question by a client and my honest answer was not usually. It has been my experience that the analytical vs creative brain struggle is real. I have found in my 15 plus years of working in an industry that requires not only a creative design skill set but also requires some serious coding know how, generally speaking, finding someone who is an expert at both of these things is rare. Now I know that the right brain vs left brain theory is in question so possibly this comes down to a preference issue and what you are more passionate about you will spend more time developing that skill set.

Why is a question left to the psychology world but when I have an associate that speaks HTML5 they do not usually speak CMYK as fluently.

Here is some more info put out by Psychology Today that debunks the right brain vs left brain theories but I still have to wonder why a brilliant team member that can guesstimate the next new algorithm updates coming from google will put together a home page design that looks like they tried LSD for the first time right before putting it together.
