How to be a Better Designer

How to be a Better Designer | Technical Theatre | Scoop.it

This guy nails it!

"...designers aren’t supposed to be the star of the show. They are backstage workers whose presence should go unknown in the work they produce. Your politics, voice, and creative tendencies all have to take a backseat to your client’s needs." 

Shahana Zubair's curator insight, November 24, 2013 11:33 PM

Every day we designers meet new clients which brings along new challenges , I think a designer should be so flexible in his/ or her way of designing what we should keep in mind is the clients satisfaction if the clients is satisfied  We are satisfied too we can't impose our own ideas on people we are facilitators and we facilitate people for their needs. 

Tyler Richendollar's curator insight, February 8, 2014 8:22 PM

A good overview of some basic practices for a designer-- it's easy to forget core principals.
