I’d just delivered a newspaper ad design to a very… ECCENTRIC client.
Client: This is good, good work. It has a very… sexual energy.
Me: Uh… thanks?
Client: You hold on to that.
He actually stared me in the eyes.
Client: Don’t let that go.
He sold ride-on mowers. The photo in the ad was a man riding a lawnmower.
This memory has been living rent-free in my head for least eight years.
