I do graphic design work for a client who regularly asks me
to design emails. She has me do the design and send it as a jpeg to her
to approve and she then sends it to our web guy to send out in a mass email to
our clients and put on our website. She often asks me to add button
designs for the web guy to make into clickable links. Every other email
she forgets that I’m just making the design and that our web guy adds the links
on his end and we end up having this conversation:
button doesn’t work.
And then, before I can
Client: Call the
web guy and ask him how to make a clickable button.
Me: He makes the
links clickable on his end. This is just the design. Even if I were
to make the whole image a clickable hyperlink to you in this email it will not
carry over when you send it to him and he will have to redo it when he sends it
out via email and adds it to the website.
Client: WHY DO YOU HAVE SUCH A PROBLEM CALLING HIM WHEN
YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO SOMETHING?!
The web guy and I have an understanding that we may have
to call each other with stupid questions we both know the answer to with her
standing behind us listening from time to time.
