Clients From Hell documents the torture suffered by talented creatives at the hands of ignorant clients. It helps put things in perspective – if you’re having an awful day, a quick browse confirms there are others in similar positions who’ve been through worse than you have. Or maybe not. There’s some gold in the archives; some of our favourites are:
“I’d like to see more earth-tones, but not browns. Perhaps a shade of caramel?”, “Let’s get together and figure out a way for you to work more hours for less money”, and the following classic conversation. Designer: “Let’s talk about colour first, do you have any colours in mind?” Client: “Well I like corvettes and the movie Somethings Got to Give.” Truth is stranger than fiction! Do you have any to add?
