I have always been a firm believer of the fact that website design is much more than just look n’ feel of a website, but more about creating a global appeal with the visitors. However, where there is talent there will be abundance of perfection and abundance of-course results in wastage. Many times I see some intriguing designs going kaput or left unused… just because a client rejected it! With time and tide, the design initially loses its charm and finally, it’s time to bid adieu to the trend.
I am a firm believer of the fact that every web phenomenon has a shelf life of its own, which is why we should be moving with the trend. So, let’s know some situations wherein a design goes out of the door and what should be done to avoid such wastage.
Often I have seen designers presenting more than one design to the clients, which is not only stressful but confusing too. Infact, there can be a situation wherein a good design gets rejected just because the other one was more suitable to the client choice. The best way to avoid such situation is to present you best work and a single one at a time rather than bombarding the client with numerous designs.
Many times we see projects getting over or expired due to fallout between client and outsourcers or due to any other relevant reasons. As a result of these contractual endings, we have precious designs that fail to see the daylight. Instead of discarding such designs one should try and use the same in other projects.
Speculative work or spec work has its own down graphs, which is why every designer should mind his business when it comes to design show-off. Just because a guy has some edge over the other designer in terms of experience doesn’t mean the design’s bad!
There are many other relevant reasons that lead to design wastage but I have covered some relevant ones that deserve better attention. Custom website design is what creativity is all about because today one needs to create his or her own niche in order to be successful. I hope the blog ignited some hidden aspects behind design wastage. Please do share the valuable info ahead and any views on the topics are welcomed with open heart.
