Social media has impacted all our lives and design practices are no exception. Clients are increasingly aware of the power of social media and this has changed the dynamic between them and the designers they work with. Whether it is private clients getting more involved in sourcing and design decisions, or commercial clients who want their projects to maximise their potential on social media channels - designers must factor in these influences in their day-to-day work. We talk to three leading designers about maximising the benefits and minimising the disruptive impact that social media is increasingly bringing to the workplace.
