A designer’s perspective versus that of a non-designer can be a bit different. We see the world from a different point of view; the good and the bad.
Non-designers often wonder how we come up with such amazing designs and ideas. From a designer’s perspective, we often see the golden ratio in nature, the typography, colours and contrast in everyday objects. Whereas non-designers tend to only see the objects themselves. Where we see packaging, others simply see chocolate. And while they see Comic Sans, designers just want to gouge your eyes out.
