How to work with a professional designer

There has to be room for creativity within your product or website. Designers hate having all their ideas shut down. That’s what you’re paying for, after all. If you have a strong vision of what you want your site or product to look like, it’s going to be very tough to work with you. Do everyone a favor and keep an open mind about the project and what you want it to look like. Being too specific really turns designers off.

Keep in mind you’ve hired a professional and they’ve had much experience making great websites. A designer’s best work is delivered when he has some breathing space. Although sometimes it may look like they don’t know what they’re doing, trust your designer.
