I have worked with some ridiculous clients over the years but a recent one takes the prize.
Client: I want all of the home page to be shown at the same time without the visitor having to scroll.
That would be fine, except the client insisted on jamming a crazy amount of content into the home page.
Me: If you look at most sites online, you’ll find some scrolling is normal unless there is very little content on the page. I think scrolling is preferable to making the content and layout so small that it’s entirely unreadable/unusable.
Client: Yes, make it all small.
Client: Do it.
