Erm, Knight, clients pay designers, let me broaden that up - clients pay servicemen for any service that they themselves cannot or are not willing to preform.
Designers are creative and as such are tasked with the job of creating a design which will communicate the intentions and purpose of the business.
The client is effectively paying you to be creative. Unfortunately micromanagement to the nth degree stifles this creativity. Clients often
know what they want but
they know how they want it. This is wrong, the latter cannot exist without the former.
In reality, clients generally only know what message and purpose they want the website not, as you're implying, what they want design wise. Yes, input it appreciated to better get a scope of the design should be like and ultimately the final decision belongs to the client but there is a line where the client is simply WRONG.
White, blues and light greys look nice together.
Red, Orange, Green & random splots highlighter pink purple do not.
From where am I pulling these assumptions? Dealing with clients on 6 and 7 figure projects every day at work.
