Ruminations of a Website Designer

One of the things I do for clients is eliminate the complexity. They are often overwhelmed and simply don’t know where to start.

I actually wondered earlier this week if it’s better to have a client who knows EXACTLY what they want, or someone who has NO idea what they want. They both have their challenges.

The person who knows EXACTLY what they want often limits themselves because they are stuck on one thing … and they don’t allow you to use your creativity, which is one of the things they are paying you for!

The person who has NO idea what they want can definitely be a challenge too as although they don’t know what they want, they know what they don’t want when they see it. An unlimited iterative design for a website though is likely to drive both parties insane! Been there, done that …

Anyway, smile, what I realized anew during this rumination process is I LOVE creating something from nothing. It’s the IDEA of a website that people come to me with … It’s a manuscript that needs shaping, sort of like a block of marble. That’s why this is one of my favorite quotes …

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it. ”
– Michelangelo

I am truly blessed to be in the business of helping people’s dreams come to life.
