Client: Hi! We’d like another logo! Essentially, it would be three blocks of text. For the first: we’d like a background of international flags and then the text of cut out of the flags. The second is one you could get really creative with. We’d like it to look electric and have some sparks. Maybe it could be a black background with neon colored lettering. For the third we’d like a sea of faces from different races (maybe some cultural markers like jewelry) and then the text cut out of the faces.
Do you think you could do this? We’d also like a version that’s animated.
Me: I’ve read over your request and I just want to give you a heads up now: a lot of what you’re requesting goes against branding regulations and waivers that I wouldn’t have the legal rights to. I’d be happy to chat with you in person about what all of that entails.
Client: Ugh, I’ll have to talk it over with my boss. This is her idea and I just think it’s too brilliant to be bothered by regulations and rules.
