Client: I have some edits for the poster you sent over.
They attached an image where they had ‘mocked-up’ what they wanted me to do in Word. They told me almost down to the pixel where they wanted things. Never mind that it broke several design rules and looked terrible. So I took their edits, made them better, and re-sent.
Client: These are not the changes I asked for! Please make it look exactly like the mock-up I sent.
I decided I was done with this client’s feedback for the day and that the edits could wait until morning. Apparently, I made the right choice. Not even an hour passed before I get the following message…
Client: Disregard my last email. I showed your design to my spouse (a design professional) and they said your changes were better than my edits.
