We are going through a website update here at donnell&day, and its so exciting to see everything come together slowly, I hope to share it with you in a few weeks. But I do have a question you may be able to help me with….
It’s such a funny feeling being the other side of the design fence as a client and relying on a graphic designer to interpret and listen to my ideas (rather than me interpreting my clients dreams for their house and giving them a physical form) but it’s a good insight on how people feel when dealing with the creative professions. I have to say I was reassured when his final comment at our first meeting was ‘ dont worry, we’ll look after you…’
Although I’m not sure he has had the pleasure of an architect for a client before …. he keeps asking me for references and in my typography research I keep getting distracted by incredible 3d paper sculpture and graphic art…. So I thought I would ask what YOU would want in an architect, what do you want to know, feel, hear, trust……? We all know there are poor performers – but lets look at it from a different angle, what makes one GREAT, what would make the experience of designing your new site specific home amazing?
Any thoughts, experiences to share…?
