Clients. Let’s be honest. Sometimes they’re not the sharpest.

Two related sites that are well worth a visit:

First, read this. It’s easily the funniest thing I’ve read in weeks and something we all wish we’d done. It’s a brilliant email exchange between a designer (David Thorne) and a client. Featuring pie charts and quite a lot of swearing. (It’s possibly apocryphal, but it’s certainly funny.)

Then visit this site dedicated to more of the same. Snippets of client idiocy.  Including these two fine examples:

“Can you re-upload the photos on my site? I think they are fading from so many people clicking on them.”

A few years ago, after we finished presenting a design to a client, he removed his shoes, plopped his stocking feet up on the desk and said, “As you can see, you didn’t knock my socks off.”

The clue’s in the name – clientsfromhell.tumblr.com
