I was working on a shirt design for a client.
Client: We want plenty of options to choose from, here are the ideas we’re running with. We have a few options for shirt color, etc, so let’s get as many to consider as we can.
Me: Okay that’s fine.
I made 12 designs, and she seemed happy. She CCed me on the email to the team about picking a design. It only had 2 options on it.
Me: What happened to all the other designs? You told me you wanted a whole bunch to choose from.
Client: If you give someone too many choices they get Decision Paralysis, you should know that. We don’t want that to happen here.
Thanks for knowingly wasting my time.
