We might think about an equation:

code + art = magic

since code uninformed by the art will lack creativity and utility. Art
uninformed by the consideration of the coding process creates buggy


(and of course variations like

code * art = magic

code^art = magic

for the fussy

code != magic, art != magic, code + art = magic
