Clients from Hell!

We have all encountered annoyingly ignorant people. The one’s where you know they mean the best, and fully believe they know what they are talking about, but they are just plain wrong. As a designer, it is impossible to avoid clients. Unless you want strive to be that “starving artist,” clients are the ones that put food on the table. This does not apply to just graphic designers, but probably all those in the creative field who create works for others. There is this mindset among those outside of the community who sometimes believe that designers are these mind-reading magicians who can bring a customers ideas into reality with the wave of a magic Photoshop wand. Ok. Maybe designers can do that, but let’s be realistic. Clients have this ability to somehow challenge push the limits of a designer’s sanity.

So if you’re in need a good laugh or in the mood to sympathize anger and insanity, check out Clientsfromhell.net. There are endless dialogues of real life situations, some almost unreal. Maybe you have your own stories to tell! Designers must stick together, and maybe we can also learn something to prevent us from becoming these “devils.”

    It’s an unfortunate reality that most of these clients aren’t familiar with design. They all have a vision of what but they need to trust their designer to help a first draft become a final draft. This website sounds cathartic! I’ll check it out.

    I am definitely curious to check this site out. I have not had any client experiences yet, but I am curious to see what other designer’s experiences are.

    This is such an interesting website reminds me of fml.com and the type of posts that are on there. I like how this is a way for artist and designers to express their frustrations and anger when it comes to horrible clients. I’ve worked in retail and have experienced horrible customers, I couldn’t imagine dealing with a horrible client especially when you need the money and are relying on the job, but I’m glad there is a website like this.
