Client: I want this product to have a quality assurance badge.
Me: Do you have approval from a quality control agency?
Client: No. We want you to make a fictional one.
Me: Okay… do you have an idea of what you want it to look like?
They send me their existing website. There is already a made-up “SEAL OF QUALITY” on their products.
Client: Basically I just want you to change the color on what we already have.
Me: Look, I’m not totally sure this is legal.
Client: THIS BADGE IS THE CORNERSTONE OF OUR BUSINESS. IT WILL MAKE EVERYONE ZERO IN ON OUR PRODUCT AND BUY IT.
