Graphic Design Critics

Author: Steve Martin

My wife is a graphic designer. She has been doing graphic design for over 15 years. I get to listen to some of her frustrations as she works with certain clients. The problem is that graphic design is so subjective. What one person loves, another person hates. So, she has to try to figure out what the client is going for and try to come up with the perfect design. Her clients aren’t always helpful in communicating their wants. Anyway, I found this little cartoon that shows how a lot of clients are when working with graphic designers. I thought you may get a kick out of it.

    That’s exactly how people are with vinyl lettering. Or sometimes they ask for something that is so ugly. When I offer other (better) suggestions, they say they really just want their idea. I feel like saying to them, “Please don’t tell anyone who made this for you!” I always feel like I have to offer several choices because it can be so hard to know what they will love. Great cartoon!

    There is a lot of vary type of opinions on design and style that it’s not possible to please everyone sadly…
