Clients & Designers: How To Fall In Love With Each Other

Which is why it is twice more painful and offensive for UX designers when their well-thought designs that respond to all the client’s demands turn to be completely opposite to what the client wanted. So, let’s figure out why UX design can fail in clients’ eyes and how to handle such situation.
