From the most seasoned Creative Director to a Graphic Design graduate all know that creatives and clients don’t always see eye-to-eye. Besides having contrasting roles, their perceptions on colours differences, typeface and image source also vary. While designers might value creative ideas, they’re worth nothing to a client if they don’t make money.
These differences can be frustrating at times. Sure, they’re still using all of their knowledge and skill to create what the client wants. But sometimes it pays to put a little more trust in a designer. And that’s where this brilliant and witty series from Trust Me, I’m A “Designer” comes in. It lists some of the biggest problems that designers face when working with clients.
Now this doesn’t mean that every client prioritizes profit over imagination, or that graphic designers are creatively incompatible with a business mindset. But we’re sure you’ll agree that there must be at least a grain of truth here.
