If you’re a graphic designer, one of the hardest things to do is trying to accede to your client’s vague, obscure and sometimes ridiculous requests that do not clearly state what they want.
I do understand that clients never want to do harm and speak openly because they want the final design to fit their needs as much as possible, but some of the comments still make us laugh out loud.

As a graphic designer – whether you work for a design agency or you're on your own as a freelancer – you're bound to come into contact with some pretty frustrating clients. Whilst there's no easy way to escape, you can use their ridiculous requests for your own inspiration. My inspiration behind this project was my clients who used to say these crazy things to me. So I thought why not to give it a creative way to share it with everyone. And I feel so happy that I was successful in conveying my message.

I've a mixture of almost everything, I’ve got one foot in the world of digital media one in UI/UX, and a love for both.” I always wanted to do something creative, so here I’m still learning and creating something creative every day. My inspiration are: Akshar Pathak, Nitin Rao Kumblekar, Vaibhav More and Nupur Bhargava. All you have to do is experiment a lot. Never stop learning new skills. Play a lot with fonts and keep your Photoshop layers named. And most important never work for free. You are a Paidlancer not Freelancer. Love your work. Dream big | Work hard.

Which of these sayings do you hear a lot and what's your reaction about it?
Um..... its a difficult one :p But saying which I heard a lot is " Use the logo it's on my facebook". When my client says this, I'm left with no reactions.... I'm like okkkk let me check and I've to use it anyhow. Because in the end what matters is a happy client with of course quality work with a low-resolution logo :P
