Why Client Revisions Shouldn’t Be Allowed
This past week The Oatmeal had a post called How A Web Design Goes Straight To Hell. The post got quite popular, getting on Digg and became a trending topic on Twitter. After reading the comic and finding it quite amusing, one thing went off in my head; that post makes one thing obvious to me, client revisions are bad. Normally these revision occur after you’ve delivered the product to the client and they want to make “tweaks”. I’ll say I HATE that!
If you are doing your job correctly as a designer you a developing a creative brief for the client outlining a solution, or solutions to their problems. By the time deliverables reach the client they should meet all requirements of the creative brief. If the client is paying a designer to create something because the client cannot. The client needs to know that the end product will meet the creative brief and that the designer’s work is in the best interest of the customer.
Client revisions should not be needed if the project is planned correctly and all requirements of the client are addressed when the designer creates the end product.
