Tips on Resolving Creative Conflicts for Website Designers

Creativity is a subjective domain. An idea that may seem creative to someone may not seem as exciting to others. This becomes all the more pronounced in a corporate environment when ideas are being brainstormed for a creative output. Disagreements are rampant leading to the ruffling of egos ultimately resulting in the main idea being lost. Take a look at some of the ways in which you can tackle these tricky situations and resolve the creative conflicts.

Let us first start with the main design aspects that you need to be working on today:

1. Fonts
One of the most important things to consider when designing a site is the font that you are going to use across it. Not necessary that people will actually take the effort to read into your site if it is exhibiting kind of smaller fonts. Why do you think someone will want to strain their eyes rummaging through a site that is difficult to read? They already have a lot many options out there. Yours is just one of the sites among these.

2. Content
There is a wrong notion that a lot of content attracts customer attention. Just as we discussed in # 2 it is not necessary that people realize what you are trying to say because they read only 28% of the content.

So, how could you ensure that you have content that attracts people.

Let us take a simple example of the site Facebook. Have you seen the site create content at any time?

But, it is a huge success. People are freaking about Facebook and you can see they are active and online almost the entire time trying to get their heads on news and updates from around the world.

3. Color of your font
Like we discussed the size of your font, the color of your font is something that again matters.

There are sites that you might have seen use all those flashy colors and annoy visitors.

Imagine landing up on a site that has blue color in the background with yellow font.

Weird! Who will want to read the content on such a site? No one! Period!

So, no one will visit your site that has issues with the color in the background and the font.

You could follow a typical and general style that people like.

4. Social media
The whole world is going live over the social media. Are you there?

If not, it is high time you considered reaching out and connecting with your group of people over these online medias.

You will get to know more about what they think and how they want things to be.

People are active over all these medias.

Be open to talks. If you are ready to listen you can learn lot and hence, improvise your work and provide your people with what they actually need rather than providing them with something that they are not expecting.

Now, we can find out what are the other things that are most important for a designer from the creativity perspective.

5. Be Open to Ideas
The foremost thing that you should be able to work yourself into practicing is to be open to ideas. Discussions are not meant to castigate you on a personal level. Stay calm and realize the potential of the other ideas being propounded. It is only then that you can propound relevant points in support of your idea as well, without getting emotional and becoming a spoil sport. A healthy interaction is always the best way to work towards a successful collaboration.

6. Do Not Respond, Listen
Once you have reconciled with your own emotions, listen to what others have to say. Good listening is a quality that few people possess. It is an art, which, if you are able to master, can help you win major battles. When you listen intently, without thinking of your responses, then you will be able to get the whole story of what others are trying to communicate.

7. Organize Your Thoughts
Now that you know what others have to say, you can organize your own thoughts to proposition your idea in the best possible way. Since you have been listening intently and have kept yourself open to new ideas, you can put forward your opinions and thoughts to use the best idea that would help further to achieve the business goals of the organization.
