Great designs: Realign. Great designers: Rework.
We have all heard the familiar phrase, “The customer is always right.” and tbey are (especially their design ideas). However, in design that is not always best. Yes, the client is paying you for your design services, and they may have specific requirements such as making sure certain graphics and text are used, but how those items make up the design should be up to the one with design experience. When our clients makes strange suggestion, we simply remind them, great designs: realign, great designers: rework.
