I think Paul Boag is stealing my clients:
You need to take control of the design process. Its your site and you should get the design you want. The role of the designer is to implement your idea. Do not allow him to drag you down into endless discussions about ‘users needs’, ‘accessibility’ and ‘usability’. These are all distractions from the primary aim – to impress your boss and earn that next promotion.
Designers, make sure you read the Please Note before heading through the list. Otherwise you will be ready to punch Paul in the face by number three.
