Back story: this was a redesign to add a product directory to a magazine website.
Client: "I want you to bury all the links for the magazine at the bottom of the page.“
Me: "Wait, you don’t want them in the nav bar? At all?”
Client: “No, I want the product guide to be the only thing that matters.”
Me: "What happens if someone comes to the site to subscribe to the magazine?“
Client: ”Fuck ‘em.“
A year later, the magazine folded.
