Sometimes when we create a design, we wonder how it'll be received. You should definitely design for yourself, but what you like may undoubtedly not be what an Art Director likes, much less the marketing group, or focus group. And in the end, in this business, the big question is "Will the customer like it?" Sometimes, I think, it's a guessing game, and you just have to go with your gut. I really wondered how this design would be received. I crossed my fingers as it went through the process from 1" sketch to real live product, and happily, it has been well received.
