    One hundred percent agreed.

    You know, coincidentally, I was talking to a friend about that and she said it’s not worth not to follow what the client asks because of the money. So she just does what the client asks and that’s the end of story. But I don’t see it that way.

    Oh, you just forgot to say that websites are made for the users, not for the client’s vanity.

    The major reason a client hires a professional is because they aren’t capable of doing it themselves. They come to us as the experts.

    We’re not Kinko’s just churning out copies, or as the author stated just a tool in the client work kit.

    It’s our responsibility as experts to listen to the client’s knowledge and expertise in their industry, understand their goal and message, to then create the most effective and compelling creative work possible.

    Design speaks to the audience. It’s message should be understood by it’s intended audience. It’s not about what the client wants, it’s about what the audience needs in order to understand the client’s message.

    Very good post and I agree completely. I think it’s important to remember that you are the creative one, not the client. You should be offering the client something different, something they didn’t ask for. Because they may not be aware of the capabilities of design, or you as a designer.

    It’s hard, but sometimes you might have to turn down a client who doesn’t want to listen. But in the long run learning to spot clients who don’t want to take your opinions on board will probably save you a lot of hassle, and make you a better designer.

    @Rafael - No matter what the medium, the message is most likely never intended for the client. Knowing your audience is a part of the project that most clients overlook, unfortunately they never seem to realize it. But totally a spot on point!

    @Fred - great insight, I agree 100%

    @liam - I totally agree about turning down the clients who don’t see the larger picture. Firing clients is one of the hardest things to do, but sometimes its necessary.

    I always say giving your design over to your customers is putting the design into the hands of amateurs. They are hiring you to be the expert so be the expert. Would a surgeon ask their patient how to perform the operation?

    The biggest thing out of this for me is that by giving in to the easy solution and by doing what the client wants you to do, you simply don’t gain any respect as a creative, rather, you are just seen as a tool used to achieve a result… and once you give in it’ll be hard to change that perception and you will be seen as just that.

    On the subject, just for fun : http://geekybits.blogspot.com/2007/09/giving-customer-what-they-want.html

    Being both customer and contractor for quite a long time, I can only say that it solely depends on the customer. For instance some people have, first of all, no idea what they want, and secondly no meaningful way of describing that what they want. In this case - yes, you have to turn on your creativity, innovate, think, solve and deliver on time. However still, many customer know EXACTLY what they want. Especially if you deal with ‘creative’ customers :) Like media companies, designers, architects… Oh, they often have(and sometimes haven’t) the clearest idea of what they want and they will be utterly upset if they will see ‘creative’ solution that put a bold cross on what they wanted… sometimes you think you know what the audience want, but many times customer may know much better… So long story short - IMHO it’s about being flexible, listening and thinking…

    Alex,

    Great comment, listening and thinking are definitely tools that designers must have. (being flexible is a little harder, but I agree with that too…)

    If you are working directly with another creative firm then I would consider that to be different. In that situation, I think that this article would not apply as much.

    I do agree that the client knows their audience better, however they most likely do not know how to effectively reach that same audience. That is why design is 75% up-front in the learning / concepting / brainstorming phases. Anyone who jumps straight into production without first understanding the problem at hand is doing a disservice to their clients.

    I just recently found this blog, and have already gone through TONS of the articles. Very good stuff!!

    This one really applies to me at the moment, we have had a few clients lately that just don’t seem to listen to the advice our company gives them. Unfortunately these are our bigger clients and we couldn’t afford to lose them at this point.

    Mostly it’s simple things like not using 6 different fonts on one page, or not trying to cram an advanced search into the header of a website… but sometimes it’s a losing battle.

    Thanks for the great articles! Good luck with the potential redesign I’ve seen you mention a few times. I like the site, but re-evaluating and improving can never hurt.

    Megan,

    Thanks for the compliment, I am glad that you have enjoyed my articles. Currently the redesign is about 75% done, and should be a huge improvement. It would have been done already, however I am scope creeping myself. (I guess that is the benefit of being the client/designer :) )

  11. Alex

    Zinni,

    I can’t but agree with you there :)

  12. Mikko

    I share the same dilemma with you.

    The project I am currently doing has a middleman involved. I always tell the middleman to ask the org he is associated to ask permission for me to alter the design cause it was a crap. Mr. Middleman told me to retain the original design to play safe.

    I don’t want to do it now! I’m not even willing to put it in my ‘folio, it’ll just ruin my career. :D
