    Cool give the insight to why...

    I also give Multiple options. But always knowing myself what is the best way to go. Being that i am a Marketing Specialist with many years proven track record.

    With all the options i give to the customer, i give a brief insight into how the public will perceive that item and what effect it has on the business.

    And of course the item i feel is best suited gt the better insight and give the customer a better understanding to why that item is beneficial to them.

    No, i never lie, just explain things in a way that the customer can understand them, in turn turning a simply thing as a logo into profit.

    Arrange the choices in a way that draws the most attention to the that you feel is the best.

    I guess the trick would be to present them options with which you are equally happy with?

    As a designer, you will be asked to design in ways that you don't like. There are lots of potential reasons for this. Sometimes it is the designer's fault, other times it is the client's fault. But you will sometimes get asked for what you don't like. And it will be your choice to oblige or not.

    Personally, I just see this as part of the job. Sometimes I get my way, other times I do not. For me, the best way to reduce this problem is to improve my skills and pick clients that appreciate good design.

    As a designer, involve the client in the design process as often as possible, and explain your reasoning behind the designs that are working, why they are working. Clients often pick either what they think is coolest or what they think is safest in terms of furthering their business, so if you involve them early in the conceptualization and guide them through your thinking on what works, it will build a stronger connection between your client and you and there will be more trust there upon presentation of the final design. Also, if you don't think a design is good, either don't show it, or tell the client why it is not working in design terms.

    i do 3 designs as well, obviously we're always gonna have a favorite, the thing i do is i give them a very detailed explanation of every design and strongly recommend the i think is the best but at the end of the day the choice is theirs wether is the righ or not.

    I don't offer multiple options out of the bat unless the client has specifically requested it. If they haven't requested it, they're allowed 3 wildly different revisions instead, which I think is far more flexible. If they do want the 3 from the get go, then I create 3 versions I am very proud of, but won't let them go for a 4th instead.

    Never present something you don't want them to take.

    many times the customer doesn't really know what they're looking for in a product until they see it.. i usually suggest several adjustments to their request that i "think" could improve the design or at the least make it acceptable. while they may disagree immediately sometimes they start suggesting it back to me it later on. really helps reduce friction and satisfies both parties as long as you can keep a fairly open mindset.

    You can openly say pros and cons of each design and let the customer choose.

    My co-worker had a pretty good solution for this type of problem.

    Make three designs, of them really shitty/max 5 minutes of work and work on the third how you would want to!

    99% of the time the clients have to admit that the you worked hardest on, is the best.

    I (try) to detach my personal preference after I submit work and all revisions are purely client driven. I'd rather have a happy client and keep my favourite work untainted by there (shitty) taste

    this will work until a client chooses of the shitty designs then you have to work with a shit design for the rest of the project.

    its best to show the client work progress so you can get a feel for what they will like so you can make something strong and something they might choose. But clients can be weird and sucky sometimes so its best to market you designs to them and of course pull out the "You hired me as design for you because i know what people like and i would recommend this design. I've been doing this for a long time i know what I'm saying." of course try not to say it in a condescending t.
