I have this client who’s a publicist and marketing specialist. He often adds some “graphic design included” packages to sweeten up his deals, and those odd jobs, usually a banner, often fall on my desk. I’ve acquired a few decent clients through him, so it’s fine in the long run, but he’s also the type to say “I just need to know if you can do it or not” immediately after I list all the reasons I said “no” the first time he asked if I could do it.
This time it was an underwater fish themed logo animation. It’s the first animating job I’ve taken with this client.
Client: This looks great! Which version do I show to the client?
Me: …The latest version, of course. Why would you show them versions which they’ve already made revisions and comments on?
Client: The one with the logo swimming as a fish, right? With the blue background?
The whole concept was the logo swimming into position, every version had that. Every version had a blue background.
