I was designing a website for a Public Relations agency who handle incredibly large campaigns. The client had a quirky sense of taste that clicked with me very well – all the images used were non-standard and incredibly visually powerful.
On the last run of amends before going live, the client asks to log in and change some text, which was fine… until he also changed the full-screen image based navigation to low-res, stale memes.
Client: I’ve been through every page and played around. I’ve used memes for our site buttons. I think it works nicely, all relevant, etc. Don’t know about stylising them, what do you think?
Me: (visibly shaking at seeing 20+ hrs of web design get ruined within minutes)
