Instead of designing icons and costing me extra, why don’t you just use the ‘Wingdings’ font?
A manager of a small local corporation came to us with a DVD of a very professionally and well done set of interviews with lots of B-Roll of their building and stock footage of cities that they had received as a promotion from another company.
Him: “We want something just like this: Three 5 minute interviews with [these managers] and I’ll do one ten minute segment at the end.”
Me: “Sounds good. What are you looking at for a budget?”
Him: “We figured about $100.”
Me [Amused]: “So what does that $100 cover?”
Him: “Listen, $100 is pretty good money for a job that shouldn’t take you more than two hours.”
Me: “Two hours?”
Him: “You can’t get this done in two hours?!? Three 5 minute interviews, one 10 minute interview. That’s an hour and a half to get the other stuff in a video and put it on a DVDs!”
Client: “We ran the ad you designed in a magazine and no one bought our product, so we would like a refund on what we paid you and we will be taking our business elsewhere.”
Us: “Maybe the ad didn’t work because you are selling hunting and fishing supplies and you put the ad in a women’s home magazine.”
Client: “That’s because we heard that women make most purchasing decisions in the home. So clearly the problem was with your ad. I’ll be expecting a check.”

After the client received their first set of mock-ups for a Catholic church brochure with a beautiful oil painting on the cover, I received this message:
“Brochure looks great, but we’d prefer to use a photograph of Jesus instead of a painting”
Client: “This should be easy.”
I have a brand that that I have been working on for a few years now which is a mixture of sports fishing meets surfing with a punk rock attitude.
I need one photo edited. It was taken around Christmas and I need the decorations removed so it looks like it could have been at any time of year. This should be something quick and easy for a photoshop expert. Even if you completely alter the backgroud, fine be me so long as it looks like it’s in a home.
Cash paid via paypal once I get the copy of the edited photo.
If interested, please email me and I’ll get you the picutre.

Marketing Consultant: “We are going to use the power of the web.”
Client: “Yes we want you to help us harness the ‘power of the web’ to get this product out there.”
Us: “Can you be more specific? There are many tactics…….”
Client: “The power of the web is it.”
Us: The “power of the web??”
