Tailoring the design to the needs of your target market will increase tremendously the value of your design and will generate a high return of interest. That’s why the final purpose and the objectives of a project must be the backbone of any successful design project.

Generally, the market and the end-users dictate the inclination of the balance. As a designer, the focus is to get as close as possible to the balance point between attractive, aesthetic design and functionality.

Do your best! “You cannot live to please everyone else. You have to edify, educate and fulfill your own dreams and destiny, and hope that whatever your art is that you’re putting out there, if it’s received, great, I respect you for receiving it. If it’s not received, great, I respect you for not.” — Octavia Spencer smiling face
