You know that sound that Humpback Whales make? That’s what the logo should look like.
When taking down details over the phone…
Me: Is that ‘B’ for 'Bravo’?
Client: What!? No, “B,” like for 'Berty’.
Client: (1) What do you think?
Client: (2) Hmmm, not sure how to describe it…
Client: (1) Yeah… You the know the strip of light you get between red and orange? You know, that ghost-like specter, that dusty colour above the white and blue of a sunset?
Client: (2) Yes! Exactly!
Me: You mean yellow?
Client: (1 + 2) Yeah! Yellow.
I still think we’re in a post-modern period where people really reject all the color blind models of society transitioning to a very reactionary period where it’s not pluralism, but an exclusivity of cultures in a way….yeah identity politics. Ideally, what we reach in the next phase of American race-relations is a period of true pluralism where we celebrate cultures that are in relation to each other, but still a true pluralism, where they are in relation without domination. Is that something this image can hint at?
Notes from first revision:
Client: The colour is too dark. Can you make it brighter?
Notes from second revision:
Client: We asked you to change the colour, not just make it brighter. See previous notes.
Client: Hey, can you send me over a quote for some banners, please?
Me: Sure! Can you let me know size, material, and quantity so I can work out your costs?
Client:: Small, medium, and large.
I was in charge of the signage for a marathon. One of the sponsors was concerned about how their logo appeared next to other sponsors.
Client: Is there any way for our logo to be better represented?
Me: I’m not sure what you’re looking for in terms of signage. Can you be more specific?
Client: Just make it so the other logo underneath ours is a little more ‘logo-ie.’
Me: You want us to change another company’s logo?
Client: Don’t change it! Just make it look better next to ours.
Client: By making it more 'logo-ie.'
Client: Great, I like the website design you made, but can you make it nicer?
Me: What do you mean?
Client: I mean, with nicer colors or shapes.
Client: Something like what you did, but a bit more nice.
Me: I’m sorry, that doesn’t quite make sense.
Client: I know, it should be “like what you did, but nicer,” but you asked for me to make things clearer.
We think it would be better to stick with darker bright colours.
Thanks, good start. I would like it to be more powerful, however. Slightly sweet and less strong.Client feedback. Possibly a coffee order.
