I recently came across a site called Clients From Hell and I’m hooked. The site describes itself as:
A collection of anonymously contributed client horror stories from designers.
Although I’ve never done any freelance design work myself, a lot of these horror stories sound all too familiar, since I do freelance web coding and consulting.
Pretty much all of the quotes on their are priceless, but here are a few of my personal favorites.
An animation budget of $1200 for a movie like “Finding Nema” – Link
“The unicorns don’t look realistic enough.” – Link
“Can you make the blue match the color of the sky right now?” – Link
I browse it every now and then for a good laugh. I know it’s funny but try not to get hooked, it can be pretty distracting.
