Client: I need you to design me a banner for this event.
Me: Ok. What do you want it to look like and say?
Client: Whatever you like. I trust you. Now hop to it.
Me: (Sigh) I need more info to work from. If you’re vague and non-descriptive it’ll end up like [previous bad commision]. You haven’t even told me where the banner is going so I have no clue what the size or dimensions you’ll need are.
Client: It doesn’t matter to me. Just make sure it’s high resolution and a square rectangle.
