Over the years I’ve done some work for my alma mater, primarily for student organizations, It’s typically easy stuff, a simple flyer here, a postcard there, and I don’t charge much (and it’s also great for my relatively thin portfolio).
As expected, the cheapest clients can sometimes be the worst but a lot of students are generally understanding. Recently however, I was working with a faculty member who sent me three emails in the space of an hour:
Client: Did I submit the flyers for print yet? It should be done by now.
Client: Here’s a typo in a name I submitted that I forgot to mention several emails ago.
Client: Please ad this sponsor logo.
