Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

 

There was this design client of mine who approached me in the middle of the project and said, “The design is great. Could you just make the font bigger? I asked what font size would he like me to use on which he raised his index finger and replied, “This big!”I’m sure most of designers are familiar with this ordeal of facing bad client types in their careers.

Believe it or not, design clients can come up with the strangest of things. They would want you to imitate a renowned design just because it attracts them. They would argue over what typeset will suit their logo even though they don’t even know the names of any fonts. All these silly client conversations are nothing but funny laughs for graphic designers.

While surfing the web, I came across this hilarious website named “Clients From Hell” that features some of the most hilarious client conversations that designers face. I thought of visualizing some of the client conversations into comic strips that will make it more interesting to read. Therefore, I have handpicked the 15 funniest client conversations for my readers to enjoy. Hope you have a great laugh! :)

 

Funny Client Conversation # 1

 

Funny Client Conversation # 2

Client: Hello, can I speak to your Managing Director?
Designer: I am the Managing Director. Can I help?
Client: No, I want to speak to the person in charge.
Designer: I am in charge. Can I help?
Client: Haha, a woman? I doubt it.
He hangs up.

 

Funny Client Conversation # 3

Client: I know you said 10 days, but I need it ready for print by the end of the week.
Designer: I might be able to squeeze it in if I work late a few nights, but I can’t promise anything. It’s a big job.
Client: Thanks, that’s very professional of you.
Designer: No problem.
Client: And because you’re so professional, I expect a 50% discount since it will only take you half the time.

Funny Client Conversation # 5

Client: I want you to make me a facebook.
Designer: Do you mean a website facebook’s functionality?
Client: No, just a facebook. I’ve been told having a facebook will help my business.
Designer: So you want me to make you a design for your facebook page?
Client: No! Not just a page! Make me a whole facebook.
Designer: You can make a facebook account, I’ll assist you with that, and we you can create a page for your business which I will help you design. It’ll appear on Facebook on your customers –
Client: WHO SAID I WANT AN ACCOUNT OR A PAGE, I JUST WANT A FACEBOOK LIKE ALL THE OTHER FACEBOOKS OUT THERE.

 

Funny Client Conversation # 6

Client: Great! Now can you add Mickey Mouse to the page?
Designer: There may be some licensing issues with that. Do you have an affiliation with Disney? Can you supply me with an image you have permission to use?
The client sends me the first Mickey Mouse image he finds on Google Images.
Client: Can you add a football and animate it so he is kicking it?
Designer: No, I’m not an animator.
Client: Do you know someone that can do this?
Designer: Walt Disney could.
Client: Great! Can he do it in the budget?

 

Funny Client Conversation # 7

 

Funny Client Conversation # 8

Client: We’re confused by the upside-down exclamation mark on the info box.
Can you turn it the right way up?
Designer: That’s… uh, that’s a letter ‘i’. As in ‘information’.
 

Funny Client Conversation # 9

Client: I need all of this on a hard drive.
Designer: Sure, I can do that. There is about 200 GB of footage. Would you like me to provide the hard drive and just bill you?
Client: No, I will send you one.
The next day I receive a 4GB flash drive with only 320 MB available.
Designer: Um, this won’t work, there isn’t nearly enough space.
Client: Can’t you just zip it? Just zip it!

 

Funny Client Conversation # 10

 

Funny Client Conversation # 11

Client: There was that song off the TV. That was nice. We’ll go with that.
Designer: Um, I’m pretty sure that will be copyrighted. I don’t think we’ll be able to use it.
Client: Just Google it!
Designer: No, I don’t think you understand. It’s probably copyrighted content. You’d have to pay the owners if you wanted to use it.
Client: Now listen here! Just find it on Google!
Designer: Well… what’s the name of the song?
Client: Oh I don’t know. Google will tell you that!
 

Funny Client Conversation # 12

Client: About that illustration – cancel it.
Designer: Cancel it?
Client: Yes, I want it canceled.
Designer: I can’t cancel it, it’s already done. You can ask for changes, though. What didn’t you like about it? What do you wish to change?
Client: I’m simply not going to use it, so I’m not going to pay.
Designer: You may choose not to use it, but you signed a contract so you must pay.
Client: Cancel the contract then.
 

Funny Client Conversation # 13

 

Funny Client Conversation # 14

Client: I’m not too sure about the blue…
Designer: Actually, that’s green.
Client: Who’s the client?
Designer: You.
Client: And what color is it?
Designer: …blue?
Client: Right. Now let me see what other shades of blue we have.
We settled on pine-tree ”blue.”
 

Funny Client Conversation # 15

Designer: Search Engine Optimization helps your site appear in search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. It’ll bring more traffic to your website.
Client: I don’t want any traffic on my website, I want it as streamlined as possible. People will leave if there’s too much traffic slowing it down.

    HAHAHAHA. These are awesome!

    I always have the conversation # 9 with my boss. So the email attachment size limit is 25 MB and when we want to email a few high-res pictures to the client, he’s like just attach them. I’m like, but the folder is 300MB! He’s like “just zip it!”

    LOL!

    These are really funny. Hard to believe some of the things clients want or expect.
    I had a client once who made up quotes from famous people to endorse his products. When I asked if he had permission he said he didn’t think they would mind!!

    These were hilarious, but I think I’d actually have to side with the client on #8. Maybe something went wrong in the execution… if it’s confusing, it’s confusing.

    This is a great collection of client conversations. I fully understand that the majority of clients are not as tech savvy as designers and do not understand design concepts fully but this is what the designer is for. I feel the majority of the time, clients try to push their ideas and concepts onto designers even when they are not correct in their information.
