What are some of the key characteristics top-tier creative designers have in common? Here are five of the more common ones:
1. They work with concepts – and not just with design techniques

In the example above, that looks easy-going with a playful twist, the relationship between the headline and the visual provides a grand introduction.
2. Creatives keep their head in the clouds, but their feet firmly on the ground
Creativity involves thinking outside the box. The visions and ideas you come up with have produce practical outcomes. Creatives are able to tailor their ideas to the extent that the websites they build exhibit top performance.
Top creative designers never neglect the UX. Uncode, the creatives’ WordPress theme created by the Undsgn team is a valuable tool. Here’s an example. Uncode’s unique and original adaptive image feature automatically delivers a re-scaled version of your pages to different screen sizes.
