Being a bit10 customer, part 2 – trauma

Wow who’d have thought that having a great website developed was soo traumatic, especially when you own a company who does web design.

My trauma however is no reflection on the bit10 people doing my project, its more of a reflection on my inability to really know what I want!

We are now on our 3rd major design iteration and probably our 50th minor iteration, and its starting to look fantastic.

The main thing I have learnt from the experience so far is that we employ fantastic designers however they aren’t mindreaders. So unless you are the sort of person who can visualise exactly what you want and convey it in simple terms others can understand (neither of which I can do), then the design process has to be iterative.

Mental note to self ‘sell clients far more design iterations’. 🙂
