I was doing design for a card game company that will remain nameless.
Client: I’m designing a “noir” card game. I’m going to need it to be colorful and have hardly any shadows. Can you do that?
Me: I can do that, wouldn’t it not really be “noir” then? The whole point is limited colors and heavy shadow, isn’t it?
Client: Yes, it would. Just figure it out.
