Creativity is unpredictable!
And, as a client, you should understand that the designer needs ample time to thing out of the box in order to design something remarkable. Now, if you set deadlines that are too short for a design, you will, often, encounter with a poor result. Because this breed needs time to think of a unique idea that you can incorporate in your branding endeavors. So, be little patient and set reasonable deadlines when you’re dealing with a designer.

This one’s important!

This is the kind of challenge a designer faces when he’s bound not to perform majority of creative rituals. If you want to see his real creative work, open the artistic playground for him and see how he operates in his full spirits.
Creativity depends on sharing the ideas and suggestions to most extent.
But when you restrict yourself to QA part only, the creative part is restricted and jeopardizes the whole design project. And the designer feels great tension on his shoulders when he’s just left with all the thinking, testing, and redesigning stuff.
Nope! You don’t need to take the designing mantle but you can listen to the suggestions and recommendations he has to share with you, can you? Because this is the smart way to work through tough situations and get the best design.
