Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Gauging perceptions, part of Learning Logo Design.
Making first contact with a client is kind of like, Close Encounters of the Third Kind.…At first, you are unfamiliar with the species, and you need to determine if it's…going to abduct your time and resources, or be a good fit for your business.…Many people, myself included, Have made the mistake of ignoring tell-tail signs…because we didn't want to turn down any work.…Gauging perception is one of the first things you want to do.…
Ask yourself these questions when approached by a new potential client.…Does this client have unrealistic expectations?…Does this client appreciate and value creative work?…Do I align with this client's business goals and services?…Does this client view us as a mere extension of their arm?…These questions and more will help you evaluate if you should move forward with a…client, or at least clarify need to look closer at areas of your creative…relationship, and address them ahead of time to avoid problems later on.…
