8 UNWRITTEN RULES OF DESIGNERS
According to grid theory to the golden ratio, there is a set of principles followed by generations of designers. Considering all of this, there is unwritten rules as well as written rules. We will learn it from the bitter experience of breaking rules.
1) DIG DEEPER
We have to dig deeper and understand it and don’t skip the stage of discussion with client.
2) MAKE THE CLIENT RIGHT,EVEN ITS WRONG
Make the client right even it’s wrong, because the client only know their business better than any designer. Not only that the client is the final judge of your design. Client knows their audience better. Listen and grasp exact need of the client and mix it up with your creativity and hard work.
3) AGREE OUTCOMES FROM THE BEGINNING
Agree the level of output from the beginning because so many projects started in the beginning without having an agreement. Even the client is right, they should pay for the work you do and the effort you make.
4) PEN AND PAPER
Whenever we developing a design or concept, there’s still nothing more than sketching it out first. It will really helpful in focusing on the subject and freeing you from distractions, also boost your skills.

If you can’t make an idea work, start again in a different way. Think out the box, There is no time for doing something but there is always enough time to do it again. Make it professional. Watch out everything in detail.
6) TEST IT ON MEDIA
As Web Designers test the page on multiple platforms, do the exact thing for Graphic Designing. If a logo design doesn’t work in black and white, it’s not a legible logo. Logo Designs have to work in multiple media like websites and print media.
7) TAKE CRITICISM!
Designers who working with clients, especially paying clients who will tell you are not good enough or your work is poor, don’t get hurt. Learn to take criticism and it’s the toughest part. Take it positively even you are proud of your works. Without criticism there is no improvement or growth in work.
8) GET PAID FIRST
Put the cash up first. Be straight to the point first even it’s a stressful situations on payment. Work genuinely, Bring out new ideas and designs. Taking a percentage as down payment on large projects, It’s shows that the client is very serious on making commitments.2
