I was designing packaging materials for a client who really, really should have shown more interest in the process.
Me: Here are three different treatments. Which do you prefer?
Client: I don’t know, you’re the expert. I trust you.
I went ahead with the one that I thought best fit the client’s needs. Two months later all the designs were finalized and about to go to print.
Client: You know – I think I preferred that blue one. It’s probably too late to change it now, huh?
Yes. Yes it is.
