This series of emails I just got from a client is a reminder of why I don’t work in offices on-site anymore. I think the stupidity in this speaks for itself.
Client: I’m sorry about that file we just sent you. We designed it and sent it and CMYK I’m not sure how it got converted to RGB. Unfortunately, I just left the office to go to lunch I’ll be back in about 45 minutes or so I guess I could send it back to you directly to you. I think our client saved it and then sent it on to their department and then to you so something had to have got lost in the translation.
Client: Cancel the 45 minutes note above, I sent a voice text to our communications department and she will send to you directly in a few minutes. Not sure why that’s happening we are very familiar with RGB and CMYK and when each are needed it seems to be either an email setting issue or Adobe export issue. This client is the only person it happens with and we’re not sure.
I checked the file and it was in CMYK. It appears everyone was melting down for no reason.
Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to brew a cup of coffee in my own kitchen and enjoy the calm of remote work.
