At times I’ve had difficulty working with graphic designers. Usually problems occur when the designer starts getting some great ideas and throws deadlines out the window.
I found a great post on communicating with designers from Mike Berg, and here are three concepts that I took out of the article that I think will be very useful:
1. Find reference material and put together a mood board showing different images so the designer knows what sort of mood the graphics should be in. (see the article to know what a mood board is).
2. Set clear deadlines. If the artist starts to change scope make sure they can meet the deadline.
3. Always get the source image files from a graphics (eg. PSD files) .. do not just get the .PNG or other finished graphics files just in case you want to change or have the images changed.
