Think Design is Easy? Think Again.




Design is easy right? Wrong.

Design isn’t just decoration or how something looks. It’s much more than that. It’s how users interact with it, how the content is structured, and how something acts. People who have no knowledge in this field often make ignorant remarks and judgements. If you’re a web, graphic, or any other type of designer, I’m sure you’ve heard this line before: “That’s too much money, I’d rather design it myself.”

Really? Ok. Go for it.

It bugs the hell out of me, when I hear clueless clients talk about design. They have little to zero knowledge and they talk about design like they’re an expert. It feels like you’re sitting in a small comedy club, with the client being the headliner. It’s hilarious.

Now I’m not trying to be hard on clients. It just upsets me when they talk out of pure ignorance. I just want them to realize that designers spend countless hours learning, reading about, and studying their craft. When your tooth needs to be removed, do you go to the dentist or remove it yourself?

The same concept applies to design. If you need something professionally done, seek a professional. It’s common sense if you think about it. Don’t try to pull the tooth out yourself, because chances are you’ll end up with a bloody mess.

Today we collected some interesting designs for you to take a look at. Now my goal isn’t to poke fun at people for their poor design skills, instead I want show you why hiring a designer is highly ideal if you need something professionally designed. If you try to ‘save money’ on design, you’ll end up with beautiful designs like the ones listed below. Enjoy!

    Thank you SO much for posting this article. I’ve spent the last 4-5 years trying to prove the value of QUALITY design, and the message just doesn’t seem to be getting out there. There’s such a big difference between clutter and quality.. and it’s totally worth the investment.
