Is it possible to detach from your personal taste?

    Not completely. A good designer will create a design in function of the brand they want to represent and the audience they want to reach, that is always the most important guiding principle in erms of aesthetics. But within these constraints, your taste will always play a part, so even if you're creating something that is not "your style" you'll still be using your taste in your choice of colors, fonts, layout, etc, so it will still have some of you in it. And that's as is should be.

      This exactly what I think and I would like to add one more.

      I don't think having a distinct personal style is a bad thing, in fact, it's a good thing. What I believe having different tastes is like spice for the dish. In a good amount and harmony, it ends up with distinct and unique results. But the amount is extremely important. If you can't adjust the spice could taste like a burnt croissant.

      and yes, it's possible. you can completely detach from your personal taste but it'll be boring and demotivating for the individual. For me, when do such a thing, even financial excel sheets become more fun rather than designing.
