Mazilu Teodor 05 December 2010 Great article. Very good read. I’d like to point out – as someone else already hinted at – that designs are often steered in the wrong direction by the clients themselves. As a professional you can ‘protest’ and try to convince your client that you’re the expert, but in the end you must either comply with their demands (because after all you’ve been hired to offer a service/product that meets the client’s needs) or simply quit. It is the sad truth. In my last design project (which got cancelled so unfortunately I can’t show you anything), the CEO of the company I was redesigning the website for completely disagreed with my design decisions and decided to completely do it himself in Photoshop. I guess you can imagine the frustration I was going through..
