Client: “You’re fired.”
Client: “You printed it upside-down.”
Me: “You’re holding the board upside-down.”
Please make the flyers larger, like a half sheet or a whole sheet. Men judge importance based on size, and the postcard size was too small.
I like it with the light coming from the top, but can you make it so there is no shadow on the floor?
Ok, can you make the website accept only mails from the big corporations, then?
Can we change the black and white images on the website to color? I don’t want visitors to the site to think we can’t afford color.
Client: I’d like to create a place where photographers can post their photos and everyone can go to the site and look at them. It will be like a portfolio.
Developer: Sounds great, but there are already great sites out there for this (Flickr, DeviantArt, etc). How will yours be different?
Client: Ahh, you see there is a flaw with all of those websites.
Developer: What’s that?
Client: On those sites, anyone can download the photos by right clicking. I need you to build me a site that won’t let users download the photos.
Developer: I’ll have to get back to you….
Since I’m paying for this magazine, I don’t want any wasted space. Please get rid of those margins and take the text all the way to the edges of the page. You can use my vacation pictures to fill any extra space.
