Judging or accessing creative ideas or designs can be a difficult task as the evaluator must possess the particular skill to see eye to eye with the designer. The creative designs made can be on the principle of both rational and emotional but personal taste, liking or preferences can collide and not reach on to a conclusion or mutual consensus.
It requires much attention, imagination, trust and reasoning to properly evaluate and review the creatives but if any one of these aspects are missing from the evaluator’s assessment then it would eventually lead to conflict and the overall design or creatives may lead to something which won’t be as creative or attractive as previously made. Much of the relationship values between the client and the creative designer depends upon their ability to constitute the ‘creative reasoning’ behind the designs. Creative agencies have their own think tanks and expert designers who think and work for countless hours to drive and implement the creative thinking in the art of the design idea and bring it into realization. All then depends on having those ideas valued by the client for whom they are created.
The Communication Process
It is also important for the agency to be able to execute engaging communications with the client and present the creative designs more effectively to them, thus making it easier for them to judge the creativity and the concept behind the design in shape of a logo or creative material. Most clients spend their days by working out the details with revenue sales number, thus dealing with creative ideas or abstracts can be daunting for them.
Most clients don’t understand that a creative idea design cannot be measured or weighted in terms of sales or revenue generation and can easily be destroyed or eliminated by uncertainty. Most creative designers can face questions as:
- How can you know if it’s a good viable idea or design
- How can you turn this good idea into a great one to boost sales
- Can it be modified just a bit more to have that great impact on the viewer
All such questions can be answered much easier with proper reasoning if both the designer and the client understand each other well.
What To Do When the Client Comes Judging You
Whether it’s a creative logo design, graphical content, video or animation content, mobile app development, poster/ flyer design or a brand identity creatives; they all must be reviewed with imagination and skill. With marketing communication whether it’s traditional or digital; one must inherit or possess proper judging criteria with proper relevancy, subjectivity and reasoning. It takes a lot of time and effort for a creative idea to be developed and emerge from nowhere, the best way is to back it up with industry experience and innovation.
Creativity must be nurtured carefully in the art of designing so that it makes it easier for the client to properly evaluate and review all its prospects and recognize and encourage its development and the thought process.
