Parlez-Vous Designer?

March 18, 2010

parlez-vous-designer

From my blog entry on the Digital Space blog

RGB. CMYK. Pixels. Serifs. Running heads. Resolution. Wrap-around. Sometimes designers speak a language for insiders only. This is fine when we’re talking to each other, but what about when we’re talking to our clients? Are we expecting them to break the code?

When presenting to a new client, I try to look at the work I’m showing them with a non-designer’s eye. Designers are communicators by profession, but all too often we forget the basics that need to be communicated to our clients so that we’re all speaking the same language. more at Digital Space>>

  8. Proper use of color can really make a difference in the project you’re working on. Using a professional design firm will help you design materials that create the right response in your target audience. The wrong use of color can turn away prospective clients if they don’t feel good about what they are looking at.
