Not receiving acknowledgment or respect for the effort and creativity put into projects.
Subjectivity & revisions

When you think of the phrase "The customer is always right", your mind may immediately go to an unsatisfied "Karen" screaming demands at an overworked cashier or customer service manager. However, this phrase extends beyond the service industry into other fields. As graphic designers, we often feel the pressure of know-it-all clients, with visions well outside the scope of reality. Don't get this wrong, client feedback is amazing and necessary. However, when push comes to shove, sometimes the client is just flat wrong. What one may call "creative differences" another may see as "I want it my way". It's always a tough balancing act to merge what the client wants and what lives up to design standards. It's not just the service industry, even professions like Graphic Design fall into the mindset of "The client is always right". We all want happy clients (and being paid is a nice bonus too), but getting there can often mean sacrificing good design for a client's demands. Plus, caving to every single client request can sabotage the entire design. We are all capable of playing Simon Says with our clients, but we need to learn when to say no. The client is not always right and that's ok!


As a design strategist within a professional services firm, this is a very common situation I am faced with somewhat regularly.

Our leadership sometimes regards stakeholder approval so strongly/weighs it so heavily that their personal biases and opinions can win out over what is best for the user or what the data says we should do.

In times like these, I try my hardest to hold my ground and give a clear and concise explanation around why I feel we should proceed in a certain direction. I would say most of the time it works, but the times when it doesn鈥檛 can be extremely frustrating. In those times I feel that I am not able to do my job to the best of my ability because, first and foremost, I see myself as the defender of the client/user, and in that moment they are being forgotten or at the least not brought to the forefront.

Colton and Ludovic taught me the critical fundamentals of what makes a great UX designer and were transparent about the things that aren鈥檛 so glamorous about the industry. I loved working on things as a group as we were able to exchange ideas and fine tune them to create a satisfying end result. Thank you!!

When I first started looking into UX design with more sincerity I wasn鈥檛 sure where to start. Now I feel more confident in myself in navigating the design process. For me, the best part was having personal access to professional UX Designers who are willing to answer any questions you may have about the field.
