It seems to me there is an overwhelming number of posts, even at the top of DN, that portray a "us versus them" perspective. The latest one talks about how clients don't understand scope and budget inconsistencies.
I think it's time we grow up a bit, and instead of venting on a semi-public platform like DN about how dumb or nonsensical or uninformed our clients are, we use that energy to build resources that educate our clients.
Stop making your clients out to be stupid. Usually, they aren't stupid - they are probably trying to win the dollar game. And even if they aren't the smartest crayon in the box, please don't advertise to every other designer how much you can't stand people who don't get what you do.
Teach them what you do. Teach them the proper perspective on design.
Stop talking to DN about how much bad design will cost your clients, and show us ways to prove the costs of bad design.
