Better Websites, Happier Clients and Improved Job Satisfaction
As Web designers we love to boast about our user-centric approach to Web design, but what about our clients? Most Web designers resent clients, seeing them as a barrier to producing great websites. However, a website doesn't just need to meet users needs; it also must meet the needs of your clients. Web design is not just about building websites. It's about providing a service to our clients. In this talk, Paul looks at how to establish a collaborative relationship with your clients that produces websites far better than you could build in isolation.
