In this short section we will deal with a relevant issue , frequently underestimated.
The most important thing for a design work to come out as expected is building a smooth, nice and solid relationship with the designer. Given that design differs from other disciplines due its frequent need for the client, it is crucial to build a proper relationship. In so doing, parties should share efforts.
The designer must always be ready to listen to the client’s opinions, never underestimate his judgment nor consider it little important. He should not make the mistake of thinking that as the client does not fall into the design, he has no ability to give his opinion, suggest changes or provide ideas.
The client should never get down to design. Design and technical-formal issues are exclusively undertaken by the designer. The client may suggest, ask, give ideas and reject or accept proposals but never handle design tools.
The designer should not expect the client to solve all the problems. It is improper for the designer to always expect the client’s confirmation to continue with his work. Although design should always take the client’s tastes into consideration, this should be done in a clever and versatile way, that is to say, that it should not interfere with the development of the work.
The client can not expect the designer to do everything on his own. Design is a discipline that is tied to the client’s requirements and personal tastes (many times capricious). Therefore, the client should always be ready to answer the designer’s requests, questions or proposals. It is advisable to set periodic meetings, for this not to be bothersome, in which doubts can be clarified and the advancement of the project can be checked.
