The differences between designers and clients revealed

This humorous video shows the different ways graphic designers and clients see the world.

Everyone from the most seasoned creative director to a graphic design graduate fresh out of college knows that creatives and clients don't always see eye-to-eye. While designers might value innovative ideas, they're worth nothing to a client if they don't make money.

This difference of values can be frustrating at times, but this short animated video posted by TrustMe.Design manages to find a funny way to look at them. Covering everything from their respective roles, to how they see colour and typography, this clip reveals the contradictory outlooks of graphic designers and clients with beautifully realised animations and icons.

Now this doesn't mean that every client prioritises profit over imagination, or that graphic designers are creatively incompatible with a business mindset, but we're sure you'll agree that there must be at least a grain of truth behind this video.
