None of the above.
The customer, of course.

In order of importance:
You are designing for the end user. . .
in a manner that the client is happy to pay for. . .
ideally you will be proud of the outcome. . .
and you hope other designers will approve of it.
That's my experience anyway.

The audience/customer/enduser. It's tough to get the client to remember that sometimes.

For my client and beyond to the intended, and hopefully wider, audience. If I achieve this with visual fluency it pleases me.

Interesting. No one said for the money...the mortgage, school fees, holidays, restaurants, cars...

If you want to be a well-paid designer, please the client.
If you want to be an award-winning designer, please yourself.
If you want to be a great designer, please the audience.

As Landscape designers we teach our students to design for the house!
Yes the client is paying and yes the design need to be functional, but if the end result is to have any chance of longevity, then it needs to feel right whoever lives there.
We design for the building, we believe the designers job is to link building with site. To join architecture with landscape; symmetry with biology.
