Are you compromising on creativity?

No, working to specific guidelines gives me a safe starting point. Essential elements such as a palette to work with and the concept or idea of what you want does give me a degree of reassurance. The purpose is to create a unique work that I know will suit what you are looking for so the more information you give me, the better. By giving me an idea of what is in your mind I can then take the concept, run with it and work towards an agreed objective. It is imperative though that you understand that there would always be an element of surprise and/ or excitement as creativity flows in unpredictable ways but you would get updates throughout the process so you can rest assured and enjoy the creative process! Ultimately it is a journey which you are part of and as such you should enjoy seeing the work progressing and have the freedom to suggest changes in order to refine the work to your liking
