Have you ever had the client pick the themes for the design?
Have you ever had a client who had a theme (or themes) in mind for a single course? And, lets say these 3 theme ideas may not mesh with each other, what do you do? (just for fun the purpose of the course is to correct a behavior, and the client wants cement, carnival, and urban as the design elements for the course, what are your next steps?
I am not the project lead so this truly hypothetical. My thought is to have some type of design discussion with the SMEs as a group and somehow convince them to allow trust me for the design and promise to mock up a few samples before I dive into the project, am I on the right track?
