sorry for the intrusion, hopefully this isn't off topic...

I'm wondering if this implies a 'waterfall' methodology (because it
sounds like it to me). If so, is that what's generally used to shape
the way devs and designers interact?

I thought the alternative would be some 'agile' approach. Getting back
on topic, this would rely on good communication between devs and
designers, and that might be easier if everyone was in-house...
