Working with a designer can be a very rewarding experience as long as you realize that the designer-client relationship should be fostered from both sides. The following are a few tips that you should keep in mind in order to strengthen your relationship with your designer:
- Be flexible – Be willing to listen to what your designer has to say – they may suggest you use a different material in order to keep your project under budget. By being flexible, you may be able to spend more on other features.
- Have trust – Trust your designer. If he or she recommends something you are unsure about, give it a chance. For example, if a designer suggests you use a gray color instead of that bold blue you wanted, wait until the designer puts a sample up before drawing a conclusion – trust that your designer knows what he or she is doing.
- Collaborate – Bounce ideas off of your designer. Collaboration usually results in some fantastic ideas that neither you nor your designer may have thought of without one another.
