Designing with your Clients
I love it when someone writes a blog post for me. Well not officially anyway.
You see I was going to write a blog post about Designing with your Clients. I was going to tell you, for example, how it is not that bad, how you won’t sacrifice your design integrity or how it helps manage risks, etc. You know my usual sharing of insights with the list of reasons or pros and cons after it.
Well, it looks like I don’t have to write this post now as David Sherwin from Frog Design has created a really nice presentation for the HOW Design Conference on why you should Make Clients Part of the Design Process. He writes:
Why collaborate with your clients? Because when clients and designers work together as equals towards a shared goal, they can feel like they’re part of the design process. Facilitated collaboration can inform and inspire your design team, so you are empowered to create great design work. It can also create alignment, which contributes to ongoing trust and ownership from all parties involved.
Yep, that was what I was going to say too. (REALLY!) Anyways, check out his presentation below which is probably better than the post I was going to write. Heh-heh.
