It’s All in the Presentation

Every design project, whether it is a thousand-dollar or a million-dollar job, needs the designer’s ability to accurately estimate for costs, materials and time in order to adapt to the client’s needs, and adjust the project’s budget as needed.

Building a good relationship between the designer and client requires perfecting the art of diplomacy, especially when dealing with difficult clients. The designer always has to think about how to present him or herself from the beginning until the end of the project.

Recently, the famous designers Bunny Williams and Bill Stubbs discussed the business of design at the D&D building in New York City. I came across this interesting article written by Joyce Wadler in The New York Times.
