What Do You Give Your Clients?


By Matt Ward | http://designm.ag/resources/what-do-you-give-your-clients/Sometimes, when I’m brainstorming ideas about what to write an article about, I like to turn to Twitter and just ask my followers what they would be interested in reading about. I did that last week, and got a number of different answers. The one that really struck me the most came from Jason Gross, who suggested that I write “A post about giving your clients what they need, whether they ask for it or not”.

Actually, that’s something that I’ve been thinking about for a while, and probably something that a lot of designers struggle with – especially freelancers like myself, whose clients tend to come primarily from the world of small enterprise. When it comes to websites, for example, I’ve found that many of these clients are just looking to get a site up and running. They are either new businesses that are just launching, or sometimes established businesses that have not had a web presence, or who have a website that is clearly old and outdated (both in terms of content and design)

Rarely do they ever have any real experience in the field of web design, and frequently their “wish list” is based mostly on what they have seen on other sites, rather than on a specific need or perceived web strategy. The problem with this is that, more often than not, several (if not many) of the items on the client’s list may not necessarily derive any specific benefit for them. In some cases, these features may even hinder the overall purposes of the site.

What do you do in these circumstances? Do you just go ahead and do what the client wants, or do you take a risk and work at providing them with what you think they really need, even if it’s completely different (and perhaps even in direct opposition to) what they asked for? This is the question that I want to consider in this article. Sigue leyendo

Gorgeous Packaging Designs and Concepts


By Callum Chapman Packaging design is all around us. On a day-to-day basis we probably see hundreds of different packaging designs, a high percentage of them being food or drink products; especially when making breakfast, lunch and dinner. Walking through the grocery store we’ll see thousands of different packaging designs, some good, some bad and some just generally average. If you want your product to stand out from the norm, you need to create something special.

This post features a handful of beautiful packaging designs, from music EP’s to snack food products and alcohol bottles to disposable “take out” coffee cups. Let us know what your favorites are, and why!

Brittany Bosco – Spectrum EP

This EP album is truly fantastic, combining several packaging options into one to produce an interesting design that is not only great to look at, but also gives a great opening experience.

Keen Fruit

Keen Fruit use some gorgeous minimalistic plastic bottles with super sleek typographic labels. The image of the fruit itself is actually printed on the other side of the bottle and therefore causes it to magnify when looking through the liquid at the front of the bottle – an interesting and fun approach.

Quality Athletic Websites


By Brady Nord

There are not many aspects in life that can bridge gaps between religion, race, and nationality. Although, one that has proven time and time again is sport. There is not a city across the world that you can visit without seeing a team jersey or logo somewhere! Because of this, many sports clubs and teams have a unique challenge of designing their web presence to appeal to an international arena more so then the rest of us. I have assembled what I would consider out of the box and quality athletic based websites.Whether you love or hate the brand or team, I hope you would agree that these companies are standing out in comparison to what the rest of the field is doing.

Inspiration: Interesting & Unique Typographic Book Covers


By Callum Chapman

Books offer graphic designers, illustrators and typographers a great way to expand their portfolios. There are endless possibilities that can be explored when designing for book covers, and often are explored, as can be seen in this post.

I’ve had an increased interest in book covers recently after putting together another showcase at The Inspiration Blog on minimalistic book covers, since then I have been browsing for book cover inspiration daily so thought I would share some of my findings here at DesignM.ag. This showcase presents a collection of 64 typographic book covers, all of which are interesting and are genuinely unique. The books themselves are crossed between a number of…

Head Up in the Clouds: Web Design that Uses Sky Elements


By Kawsar Ali

It is always amazing to designer incorporating different element of nature in their designs. This time the inspiration is cloud, sky and blue palette colors. In this post we are featuring some really beautiful website that used sky, cloud images and illustrations in their design.Some of this website used stock images and some of them used vectors or combination of both. Nevertheless, the outcome is very professional and fun to see.

5 Essential Office Functions


By Brady Nord

Creating a unique and inspirational office space is an essential tool to get your employees to put in the long hours. Much has been said of the great work spaces out there, and I don’t intend to beat that same drum. More importantly, I want to break down what makes these offices so special.

1. Make it your own

As you can see below from John Lasseter’s office in Pixar, he has definately made it his own. John Lasseter personally was the director of Toy Story 1 and 2, A Bugs Life, and Cars just to name a few of his accomplishments. Clearly you should not be afraid to make your space yours!

Designing Websites that Cross Cultures


By christianarno

Building a successful website is no small task, especially if you’re going into business – it takes time, effort and dedication, from working out your business plan and unique selling point (USP) through to designing and managing your website and optimizing it for search engine rankings.So with all the effort you’re putting into your site, why restrict yourself to just one language market?


If you decide to just stick with a single language for your web presence, you’re cutting out a huge number of potential customers from the 1.8bn people currently online around the world. If English is your language of choice, then your native-speaking web audience will account for less than a third of all web surfers (internetworldstats).

Going multilingual with your web presence is especially crucial for online businesses, since research shows that 85% of consumers – even multilingual consumers – will not buy from a website unless they can read about the product in their own native language (Common Sense Advisory).

So how exactly do you go from being a monolingual website with one target market, to being a world-conquering behemoth with virtual branches in countries around the world? Sigue leyendo
