I was working on a wedding invite that the client was adamant should include an illustrated script typeface resembling rope.
Me: You know that this might not even work, and if it doesn’t, I’ve just wasted all that time.
Client: Don’t worry, I think you’ll be fine.
Me: Keep in mind you can’t make copy edits once I get started since every letter is illustrated by hand.
Client: I understand! Just do it.
After hours of work, I send him a sample…
Client: It’s not looking the way I wanted. Can you just pick a script typeface from your font collection? As well, I have some copy edits for you.
