Good designers are hard to find and sometimes even harder to work with. But it doesn’t need to be this way.
It is common for a client to ask for something and then wonder why the designer won’t just give them what they want. After all, “the customer is always right.”

It was all fun and games until my purse got stolen.
We were on a great vacation, and visiting the Arizona Memorial on Oahu. In the parking lot, there was a sign that warned “High theft area, do not leave valuables in car.” So what did I do?

Channeling Andy Rooney, I ask you: “D’ya ever notice that it always takes longer to get to your destination when you don’t know how to get there?” I’m referring to the multiple impatient glances you make toward your directions- possibly downloaded on your device or those which have been inked onto the back of a phone bill envelope as you lurch your way through a neighborhood, squinting at house numbers.
You fret as you drive, annoyed with the pokey drivers ahead of you, worried that you will be late for your appointment. Anxious, you may even take a Read More…
