A collection of thoughts from many great designer on the designer–client relationship. I like this one by Quentin Newark:
“If I go to see the doctor, I accept that the doctor has trained, has skill, has experience, is concentrating on one aspect of me. I’ve asked them to do that. What I don’t do is what bad graphic design clients do. I don’t lean over the doctor’s shoulder and say, ‘Could we make that pill a bit larger?”
Snarky but true.
