had a difficult discussion with a designer.


We’re working together on my new client’s newsletter (she works for them).

She thinks in pictures.

I think in words.

What made it difficult was not so much that we disagreed, it was that we didn’t have a common language (neither one of us knew what the other was talking about).

I think we finally figured it out, but it wasn’t easy.

It was a good reminder that not everybody sees the world through the same lens.
