Accounting + Design

Hi I’m new to design all together, but was curious to get people’s insight on the relationship between design and accounting. There on opposite ends of the brain for sure, but it seems like the more design and accounting work together on a project or design brief, etc. the more likely that product, service, or design brief would get the go-ahead from the boss. Your thoughts?

Also, for those in the field do you find these two departments work together well? What are some of the hurdles?

Thanks for your time and insight!
