Your team has two modes. Here's how to unlock the most creative one.

By default, your developer/designer will follow your design request as closely as possible. 

This means using the assets provided, and if inspiration is given, trying to get something as close to that as possible. 

However, not everyone wants their designer to follow their instructions to a "T" every single time. The key to unlocking your designer's creative mode is to ask them for a few concepts and let them know you'd actually prefer something different from what you've been creating with them lately. 

Tips & Tricks

Other tips are to include:

  • Fewer instructions, inspiration
  • Examples of what you don't want
