Design? For whom?

Shahrukh Zaid asks on Linkedin how does the audience size & diversity impact the design process & design success rate?


Designing for a niche or bespoke market offers a more direct line of communication between designer and the end-user. With a smaller set of audience, designers can focus on individual needs, preferences, and nuances, resulting in a higher likelihood of meeting or exceeding expectations.


In contrast, mass-market design involves catering to a diverse and vast end-user base, each with varying preferences, cultural backgrounds, and usage contexts. This complexity amplifies the challenge of creating a universally appealing design.


Moreover, successfully designing for mass markets demands a deep understanding of user demographics, behavior patterns, and cultural sensitivities. It requires balancing functional requirements with aesthetic appeal while ensuring scalability.


In essence, the difficulty in achieving design success scales with the size of the end-user base due to increased diversity, complexity, and logistical challenges inherent in catering to larger markets.
