I have had a quick read through some of these threads here and there are many forumites complaining that clients destroy their good work and are so difficult etc etc. I have the same gripes believe me but I found this video online recently. Its a video of Paul Boag explaining how to get clients to say yes to your designs and how to treat difficult clients. Very interesting! Incidentally, after watching this video, I used a technique that Boag advocates (the one about asking how the target audience would react to the design, not the client themselves) and I got an instant result- A client that appreciated my approach to her product. She instantly became more receptive to my ideas and I havent asked a client "how do you like it" since. What do you think? do you agree with Boag?
