Perfection can harm the Development

Nothing is perfect in this world, and you will always get something that can be improved.  You cannot make a product 100% perfect before launching it. You should better take other’s mistakes as a reference and be creative. Sometimes perfection may be harmful. When you start working on a project, you set some goals to reach with the design.

The main motive of any design is to attract consumers, increase sales, enhance online presence and create awareness about the product. You should try to achieve these goals rather than trying new things that take you away from goals. You should try to find out some simple solutions to get closer to your goals.

Perfection Often Remains Unnoticed

You don’t know what your audience needs so you should not try something extraordinary.  You can present your project with simple designs.  Sometimes extra time you spend on making a graphic perfect remain unappreciated and unnoticed. So do what your audience wants. Sometimes recipient of your project does not notice your extra efforts.

Perfection can enhance Project Completion Time

You can deliver the perfect project by not being perfect. You just need to focus on the objectives of projects that will be visible in your final projects.

Graphic designing is an art, but it should be precise and easy to use. Many graphic designers try to add lots of creative approaches to make it perfect, but it extends project completion time.  You should focus on project goals and try to reach them.
