Basically, what all web designers either have had to endure when dealing with clients or at some point in their career have done some of the following. Great article and worth the read.
Its been 16+ years since I built a website for my first client and I’m not ashamed to say that back then I was a terrible web designer. In fact, everything youll see below, I was guilty of. However, I eventually learned how to perfect the web designing process the hard way, through determination, research and lots of experience.
I constantly see many web designers making the same mistakes I made 10 years ago so I hope this article will help web designers and those who have or are going to hire a web designer.
