It’s nice, but repulsive.Client response when asked his thoughts on the final design.
I was working with a client who requested a site where people sign up for acting and film crew roles, and compete to work on a movie project together. He gave the following suggestions for the website:
- The fire on the homepage slidesow moves… maybe the car crashes and the jet flies off
- There’s a wheel of fortune offering the opportunity for people to sign up in various categories. Perfect world, if someone picks the stuntman, on the side of the screen, a stuntman is jumping off a building into a fiery pit below, or he is in a fight scene in a bar and getting his head hit by a bottle and thrown through the glass window
- Flashmob will be created in LA. Can we take excerpts from this and put on the site?
- On a page in our website, workers are beating away at the Hollywood sign.
- Commercial of meteor from outer space.
- Can we take the meteor blowing up Hollywood and put that one part in a virtual billboard on another page?
- Maybe we just put scenes from the flashmob in with the metor video.
Client: I need you to fix the width of the menu block of the website. It seems too big.
Me: Width? I checked the PSD file you sent me and is exactly the same width is shown
Client: Look, I need you to fix this menu. It looks too wide.
Me: Ma'am, I double-checked the width of the menu and is exactly as is necessitated in the PSD document
Client: It’s still too wide! I don’t care what you say, the distance from top to bottom is TOO WIDE.
I don’t know what I want, but I’ll know it when I see it.
We’d like the banner to be less wide in terms of height, but keep the same length.
Give it more of a design edge.
Me: Is there a particular ‘feel’ you want your website to have? For example, do you want it to look corporate, or would you prefer something that looks more organic or homemade?
Client: Yes - integration, optimization, results, return, media investment.
I’d like the new logo to be more modern and traditional.A night club owner with confusing tastes
Can you adjust the colors? The main image looks too ‘hypersensitive.’
I had a client who wanted me to illustrate multiple characters for a game. First they asked me to illustrate one character to see what style I would do it in. I sent it to them. They changed their mind and asked for a different style. I redid it and sent it to them. They seemed to like this better and asked me to continue with the next two characters. After sending those in, they changed their mind again. After the third revision, they sent me a email telling me they wanted me to redraw every character created thus far.
Client: The one you submitted to us.
