Early on, for the most part, my assumptions were reinforced when project managers and copywriters came to the design department with creative briefs and copy pre-written and said, "We have everything figured out, now make it look pretty.” This setup never left room for the designer to voice his thoughts or ideas to the people making the business decisions.
