We always debate – my husband believes he knows for sure – what comes first? The chicken or the egg?
I don’t think it’s fair to tell his belief, but I’d sure like to know your idea…
We used to debate at work, too – the good design idea goes first, or do you save your favorite for last?
My thought on that wavers. No matter what, the client will like what they like – and I think they should pick – without intervention or opinion from me. However, depending on how strongly I disagree, I may tell them along with why I prefer another design and why I think they should reconsider.
It doesn’t always work out, but what comes first, your happiness over being able to put a design you like in your portfolio, or a client who loves what you created for them? I guess I’ll choose the latter. (The egg or the chicken? Well… That’s a whole nother story.)
