Mini-FFC #16 – Thoughts

1st Topic: Dealing with Clients

Speaker: Rina Malonzo

  • Listen to client needs – identify the real problem
  • Charge with eyes open – learn the product life cycle and the work involved
  • Set expections – be realistic, under promise and over deliver
  • Build trust – tell the truth, don’t disappear, failure isn’t an option
  • Tell clients if they are “wrong” – listen to why they don’t like a design, design for the customer, have an intelligent conversation – don’t simply say “OK”
  • Get a downpayment before starting a project
  • Get repeat business

Popularized by known CSS pre-processors such as LESS and SCSS, RCSS aims to bring the joy and fun back in writing CSS with nifty features straight out-of-the-box. Aside from the core feature built under its hood, it can be extended via plugins that anyone can easily write and share.
