attached a few vectors below. Will any of these work for you?
Client: I like this one, but the color is wrong. What will we do about the color?
Me: Don’t worry, since it’s a vector image we will be able to change the color.
Client: Oh no, don’t make it greyscale, it has to be in color!
Me: We can change it to any color. We won’t do it in greyscale.
Client: Here’s another project we did. See how the images are in color. It can’t be greyscale.
Me: It won’t be greyscale.
Client: It can’t be!
I filmed at event for a client, charging only 200€ for the filming. The client asked if I would do the editing as well. I told them my rate was 600€ with a week’s deadline. They declined.
Two weeks later, they got in touch and asked if that offer was still on the table.
Me: Of course! Just the video I filmed?
Client: That one, and a video covering another event.
They sent me that video and it was terrible. It wasn’t even white-balanced.
Me: I can do both, but this second video is really bad. Honesty, it will take a while to make it acceptable.
Client: No problem, so long as we have it on Wednesday.
It was Monday at 7:30.
I received a single line e-mail.
Client: I need this building 3D printed. File is attached.
The attached file was a screenshot saved in MS Word of an artistic rendering of a new building.
Now I need to break it to her that 3D printers need a little more to go on than a screenshot.
Make no mistake, it’s going to be painful.

A client submitted an image for inclusion in his book. The image measured less than an inch on all sides at 300 dpi.
Me: We’re going to need a new file for figure 6. It’s less than an inch in size at our required resolution.
Client: Just make it bigger! If you can’t do that, I guess I’ll have to. It also needs to be changed to black and white. Can you do that, or do I have to do everything?
I just lay my head down on my desk and laughed hysterically.
Open call for a comic artist posted to a social media community. Not a joke post. This guy was dead serious, and screamed at me when I pointed out all the problems with his “contract” offer. $30 for two years of open-ended work.
He thought he was being more than reasonable.
I don’t think this is really necessary to say, but just for the record, to make matters explicit, you will not be paid.via @forexposure_txtI don’t think this is really necessary to say,…
