Default For Business Owners Looking To Hire A Creative Professional

Just read a good article for business owners looking to hire a creative professional. Thought it was applicable to those looking for web designers. Would be interested in your thoughts!

Nice one.

I like the idea that web designers should also be focusing on the usability and business effectiveness of their designs, not just the aesthetics. And that clients should be insisting on that kind of focus from their designers.

And therein lies the problem. Unfortunately, inexperienced web designers and consumers don't always know that they should be focusing on the usability and business effectiveness of their designs, not just the aesthetics.

It's up to those of us who do know to educate them.
