I like to think of myself as a decent copywriter. Though I’m not professionally trained, I have a strong skillset in written communication and at least a minimal awareness of the tedious requirements. But does anyone ever think about the collaboration between designers and copywriters?
Most recently, when presenting a facebook freelancer group with my business logo ideas, I was bombarded with how the design should come first or the wording should come first. The way I personally approach a branding or design, is thinking about the way it reads or feels or looks all at the same time. Some critics of the group stated that “theagraphical” is potentially confusing, illegible, even distracting. Others said that I have to find what I feel most connected with. So far all who have met me and see the logo in person, have truly connected with the way the words and design work together to encompass who I am and what I do as a business.
Speaking of words and designs, this article I found on HOW Design (a MUST HAVE magazine for designers) discusses the potentially epic collab between designers and copywriters. Check it out! Come back here and tell me what you think! Think a collaboration between designers and writers would be beneficial or nah?
