Getting Great Clients: More than Just Luck?

Getting Great Clients: More than Just Luck?

The best clients are the ones that trust our expertise and seek our input on ideas, but aren’t afraid to poke holes when needed. They collaborate on ideas without pushing their needs over those of their users. They also make time when needed. But I’d argue luck has nothing to do with having a great client. Rather, it’s how you enable them to be great. And as a designer, that’s an important part of my role in a project.
