Breaking FREE from design handcuffs!!!
We have all been situations were a client or supervisor has put the design handcuffs on you. Projects that seem so restricted that you can't be creative. There are ways around this, one create the piece the way they want then take a little extra time to do something more creative that you think fits the project your working on. Present both of them, I find that when a client or supervisor sees the more creative piece they pick that one. Another way is ad little flares of your influence into the design if you are using corporate identity guidelines. As time goes on add more of those little creative gestures to make the piece better. Even though the person may have something in mind it is up to you to make it better and you should be creative to do that however that maybe.
