My Kind of Designer


I’ll admit it; I’m new to the design field. I have read articles to get an idea of what clients may want. And I have read other articles on what other designers say we should give clients. I agree with some of the things and the rest is just mind boggling. So in this article I will address the things I agree with so you have an idea of the kind of designer I want to be for my clients.


First of all, my main concern would be to know exactly what my client wants and any concerns they may have. To me that means listening to everything they have to say. If they have a better image or copy they would like to use I’ll try it. After all, my client knows themself better than I do. If for some reason I feel the clients’ idea may not suit the project I’ll discuss it with him. There is no point in either of us to “pull rank”. Teamwork is what gets the project finished.


Next, I would only take on projects I know how to do. For example there is no need for me to even accept a project to design an elaborate website. Yes I could do it but I wouldn’t want my client waiting forever on getting their website built. I’m a little better at print design so I will stick with that for now.


Finally, I would do as much as I could to help my client. Hey, I’m not wonder woman! I’ll go the extra mile to find a printer, choose papers, or what ever else my client may need help with. After all, if my client leaves happy then I’ve done my job. Hopefully, if they need another project done, they will call on me to do it.


In conclusion, these are some of the goals I have set for myself when working with clients. Know what the client wants and address their concerns. Accept the projects you know how to do. And go the extra mile for clients. You may or may not agree with my thinking. That’s O.K. There are a lot of other designers out there to choose from. We each have different ideas to offer for all the different clients we come across.
