Alex Cabal:

The Cult of Design Dictatorship is bad because it so easily appeals to every human’s ego, and it give bad designers an excuse to always be right. When bad designers are always right, bad design becomes par for the course.

Interesting thoughts from Alex. What I’ve found in interacting more often with clients is that if you listen to their feedback, but boil it down to what problem they’re trying to solve, rather than blindly implementing their suggested solutions, you end up with a better result in the end.
