I’d been working on a collateral project with a client. She loved poster 1. But when I submitted poster 2 there was a problem.
Client: This poster is beautiful. But I’m afraid I can’t use it.
Me: Can I ask why this poster won’t work so I can make improvements?
Client: Well. It’s too dark.
Me: I’ve used the color pallete discussed though.
Client: But the woman is too dark.
Client: She’s black.
Client: Black women don’t sing classical music. I just can’t use this.
Client fired. Client fired so hard.
