Spanish graphic designer and art director Oriol Gil created the brand and package design for Cornelia and Co, a restaurant, bakery, winery, and coffe shop located in Barcelona. The simple black and white identity is inspired by the graphic design of central Europe between the 30s and 40s.
A couple of selected artworks by Yana Moskaluk, a young Russian illustrator currently based in Moscow. The style of Yana Moskaluk’s illustrations is inspired by fairy tales, fashion, and traditional Japanese prints.
The client knows best
hi every one, i know it has been a while since i last blogged or shared any of my works. I’ve been going through a developmental phase and basically been asking my self the question what do I want to do with my life and is this what I really want to do, there I say I haven’t gotten the answer…any ways let’s get back to the real purpose for today’s post. Today I am going to be highlighting the some tips i think most newbies or designers take for granted especially when working with customers you are used to or have been friends with for a while.
1.) A clear design brief
please people what ever you do try to get a clear design brief, this project was hampered by a very unclear design brief. designing a flyer in landscape mode and getting applauded for the design only for it to be changed 3 days later and with that came a whole new design concept.
2.) A chain of command
Having a clear chain of command and knowing who to call to ask the important questions is important. In the case of this project I was in contact with my friend instead of the promoter this caused additional problems and counter commands tthat just made it a little bit more stressful.
3.) The Customer is always right
The saying the customer is always right has been around for sometime learning to deal with that in itself takes I believe years of practise as an unhappy customer is a customer that won’t be back which at the end of the day affects your bottom line so always endeavour to keep your customer happy while also trying to lay in one or two professional advice.
4.) Tidy up before you travel
My elder sister recently got married and I tried my possible best to close this project before I travelled for the wedding. Needless to say that didn’t happen and i found my self up at odd hours trying to get a good internet connection and working on a project that should have been completed before I left and what led to this i hear you ask ”An unclear design brief”
5.) Draw the Line
This has to do with your artistic integrity and knowing what’s best for the client sometimes what is best for your clients isn’t what your client wants. your ability to manage this and get your client to see things your way or come to a compromise does at the end of the day saves face and saves your client from unnecessary issues down the line. Then you don’t get the “you should have told me” line.
that’s all people if you’ve got any more and you want to share feel free to post them as a reply to this one. drop comments and talk about your experiences as developers or designers would really love to hear what ya’ll think. cheers for now
