Client: I need a nice yellow for the background. Not a piss yellow or a sunshine yellow. I need something closer to white.
Me: (shows #FFFDCD)
Client: No, lighter.
Me: (shows #FDFFE1)
Client: No, let me show you this color in this email.
Client: (shows me #FFF400) Go lighter than that. I want to know that it is yellow, MUCH MUCH lighter, BUT STILL know that it is yellow.
Me: (shows #FFFDCD again) How about this pale yellow?
Client: Yes, this is my vision.
