The white you’ve used in the header is solid. We’d rather it was opaque.A client whose website has a white background.
Client: Can you do some concepts just like that image I sent? But completely different.
Me: Depends what kind of “different” you want.
Client: The same concept idea, but completely different.
Me: I’m still not sure what parts need to be different.
Client: All of them.
Me: Then what’s the same?
Me: Then what’s the point of the image you sent?
Client: It’s something to build on.
Me: So you want that as a foundation… but a foundation that I in no way use?
Client: I don’t love the visual at the beginning of this video. I would love to replace it with news station film or school bus with kids getting off.
Me: I haven’t seen the footage you are referencing; could you send it to me?
Client: We don’t have other footage. I’m saying in the future.
Me: We’ll get the footage in the future?
Client: God no, there’s no time for that.
Client: Can you design a commemorative tattoo of my mom? She’s dying of cancer.
Me: Sure, what is your mother like?
Me: What does that mean? Do you have a photo, or any idea -
Client: It means she looks nothing like me - but can you make it sorta like me?
This client is in her forties. I regularly receive (both text AND email) messages like these.

I really like the color of the image when I tilt my laptop display all the way down. Please make that the normal look of the image.A client who didn’t appreciate that I updated the image with a picture of a closed laptop.
We just want “iconic” icons.
Please remove the background image of snow. Avoid ‘cold’ stuff and update with 'wintery’ graphics.
Finishing up a client’s website, the client requested I edit a main photo.
Client: Is it possible to make the black and white photo more colourful?
Me: Sure, I'll change it right away.
I change the black and white picture into a colour picture. The client responds:
Client: No, no no! I need the picture to be black and white, but more colourful!
Make it more subtle, but try to have it pop too.
