My boss wanted something like a coat-of-arms for his logo. I showed him one with a lion, and he said “It’s been done before. We want to be unique”. So, I showed him one with a tiger instead, but he said “Not THAT unique. Tigers don’t belong on a coat-of arms. Can’t we find a middle-ground?” A week later, tired of redesigning the logo, I just literally found a middle-ground: I sent him one with a Liger.
