I was working with a company in Nairobi.
Client: Here are some photos of our team doing tech. Use them, please.
Client: Uum…these don’t look ‘techy’ enough.
Me: Those are the photos you gave me. What do you want to be changed?
Client: Can you maybe make us look more professional? More tech-focused?
They were all already sitting in front of computers.
Client: Here are some photos of our chief investors. Digitally insert them into the previous ones. Make them look like they’re really in our Nairobi office with us.
They gave me new photos. All of their investors were white.
Client: Oh, and can you make their eyes blue and their hair a little blonde, please?
I’m not sure who I’m upset with here, but the answer might be “everyone.”
