I was helping a client create a mascot for their delivery company. I had already sent them some designs and was getting feedback.
Client: Could we change the eyes?
Me: Okay, did you have something in mind?
Client: Yes, I want him to have eyes like Herbie’s.
Me: Herbie? Like… the car?
Client: Yes, that’s it.
Me: But… Herbie’s a car. He doesn’t have eyes - just headlights.
Client: Yes, that’s right.
Keep in mind that the mascot we designed was an animal.
