After getting out of the movies, I looked at my phone to find 10 texts from a friend explaining how, exactly, she wants me to design her son’s second birthday invites.
I had never discussed this with her, she didn’t ask, and she simply assumed I was doing it.
Client: Toy Story themed…. Paste his face on Woody’s head… Maybe Buzz Light Year to the side, I dunno you can design however you want… Toy Story fonts, Toy Story backgrounds, etc.
After the texts stopped coming in, I texted her back:
Me: We need to talk.
To which she responded:
Client: …but I don’t want it super themey.
