The client is an official local distributor of globally recognised brands.
Client: I need a billboard design.
Me: Alright. Send me the images.
Client sends 72dpi, 200kb web sized images.
Me: Uhh… Those images are too small to design a billboard.
Client: I thought you can scale an image to any size you want?!
Me: If the image is low resolution, I can’t scale it. It would pixelate.
Client: Well that’s all the images I have.
Me: Don’t you have official marketing and promotional images from the manufacturer/brand?
Client: No. I just went on their website and saved those images.
Me: O… K… Well what about doing photography for the product range?
Client: Nah that’s too expensive. Just use the images I sent. Work your magic… You’re talented. That’s why I came to you.
