I am a fresh graduate who started working as a Graphics Designer.
My boss gave me a task to create a design from various references. As I do the job, I consult with him and report my progress so that the design I create matches with what he envisioned.
However, when I complete my design, he gets inspired by something, and says, "Ok, let's try a new idea." This is a completely different idea with different references.
I understand that we should choose the final design from a set of multiple designs, but this has gone too far! I have created different versions of the same website about 20 times now. I cannot do it any more or my mind will blow!
How can I approach my boss and ask him to make up his mind?
I have come to realize that the revisions are simply part of his creative process. I find it difficult to try my best if I know my first design will be rejected. Not because of its flaws but because my boss changes his mind about the whole idea that we started with. It does not bother me as much as it did in the beginning. I will just suck it up for now and use this as an opportunity to explore the limits of my creativity.
