I had a client who needed me to copy t-shirt designs from lo-res, 500px images. He sent me the images and I had less than a week to recreate them from scratch. I finished two and sent them in.
Client: The second one looks bad.
Me: OK. I can work on it, but I’ll need a day.
Client: I need it immediately.
I mentally tabulated how I could get it done before tomorrow. Who needs sleep, right?
Then I sent in the third design. The original image had distressed text, which I duplicated.
Client: No distressed text. Fix it. Immediately.
If you are not willing to communicate properly then don’t get mad if its late!
