Wanted: Honest Frank Feedback
It’s easy to look at what you’ve created and see it as either good or bad. The more you create, the more you get to know your own eyes and what they’re trying to tell you, and you realise that no creation is either good or bad. But after a while in the middle of a creation, your eyes stop seeing it. When it comes to asking for visual feedback, people see very different things — it’s heavily influenced by a product of the subconscious meaning each person has attached to the colours, aesthetic, shapes, fonts, spacing, words, etc. So, who are those people who will give you honest feedback, and tell you what their eyes see, wrapped up in a little cotton wool? Those people are gold-dust.
