The battlefield od design: designers vs clients

This tittle and this subject originates from the following location.

The first line in the conclusion of this article states, “On the first reading of this article you may be thinking that the process that I’ve described sounds time-consuming and expensive. However, in the long run, we’ve found it to be a real time saver.”
Paul Boag begins by pointing out how design is a “collaboration, rather than confrontation.” There is no need for the feel his expertise in design is ignored, while the client feels that their input is being ignored.
1. The kick-off meeting
2. the stakeholder interview
3. Inspirational sites
4. The use of mood boards
5. Wireframing
6. Design testing
7. Design and interation

This author is completely right, I do look at this list and feel it would be time-consuming and expensive. Though I am new to web design, I can see how these things can be applied to my photography, and audio production. Yes it does require a bit of a twist but the principles are the same. I do feel that these seven points are worthwhile and give me some firepower to use in all of my endeavors.
