I’m a graphic designer and one steady client I have is this promoter who hires me to make posters for all her shows.
First, she sends me thumbnail photos of her talent and wants to use this in full sized posters. She has no idea what “high res” means.
I usually contact the talent to ask them for higher res pics, but the promoter lady usually hates them.
I design the poster, send it to her, and infallibly, every single time, she sends it back with more or less the following comment:
Client: I love it honey! If you just change the pic, the font, the colors and the layout, it’ll be perfect!
Eventually, I stopped fighting. I now do everything she asks for and gave her very specific instructions to not tell anyone who’s designing her posters. I refuse to have my name associated with the crap she puts out… but I still got bills to pay.
