The client sent me animated gifs to be used at the end of a broadcast sponsor banner spot. That’s bad enough, but the gif didn’t fit the template. I tweaked it to fit.
Client: We don’t like it. Please do it closer to this proof.
The proof had the gif going outside the template.
Me: It has to be tweaked to fit.
Client: No, don’t tweak it at all.
Me: …Tell you what. here are the dimensions they gave me. If you can fit something in there, great.
Suddenly my original proof was perfectly fine and approved.
