Is Design Subjective?
I'm sure many of you have been faced with this topic from client interactions, but I was curious what everyone's thoughts were.
For some reason, this subject has come up a lot lately from people who I talk to about design (usually non-creatives) and it really irks me. People I've run into seem to believe that design is predominantly subjective in the way it is consumed. Personally, I think there is a certain level of subjectivity to it, but there are certainly "best practices" within design that are, in fact, better than others.
What do you think?
