If you’re working with a web designer on a website designed to drive business then chances are you’ve found post because you’re wondering how to get the most out of your web designer.
As a designer myself, I’m here to share a few tips with you.
How To Get The Most Out Of Your Web Designer
You might have noticed that throughout Webhive Digital I refer to ‘we’ and ‘us’, which might seem like I’m talking about ‘the team behind Webhive Digital’ (spoiler: it’s me!) but I’m actually talking about you and I.
I believe this process requires us to work as a team in order to bring your brand’s vision to life, so yes, I’m talking about us.
As such, that means you have an important role to play in this process and I want to share a few tips on how to get the most out of your web designer during the creative process.
Talk, talk and talk some more
I love to chat so it’s possible that’s why I’m so keen on this point but in reality I think it’s really important to keep an open line of communication throughout this whole process.
Getting a feel for who you are is just as important as knowing your brand and let’s be honest, sometimes it’s just easier to have a quick chat isn’t it?
Share what you love… and what you hate
What you dislike can tell a designer a lot more about your project than what you like in some instances. It also helps to eliminate a few things as a ‘hard no’. But we definitely also need to know everything that you love! So share it all.
If you’re not happy, speak up
You don’t have to love the first thing your designer sends you and I promise that any respectable designer won’t take offence to your opinion. This design should reflect you and you’re the best person to judge that, so speak up!
The most important thing to remember in this process is your web designer (hopefully!) wants to do the best job possible for you.
They should be open minded to your ideas and clear on the direction of your design. If you feel unsure on anything then it could be time for a chat with your designer before moving forward.
You may have noticed that the recurring theme throughout this post is communication. I believe this is the key to a successful design project and it’s at the core of all the work at Webhive Digital. If you think we’d be a good fit to work together, let’s chat.
