A client recently asked me to create a poster for their show that was coming up soon. Got it done in two hours and sent it in for feedback

Client: So we think you should take this out because it distracts from the whole thing

Me: Okay, no problem

Client: But we want more colors! Turn this into this color, add to this, change this to , and make all the text so it’s more vibrant. We want to avoid black and white as much as possible

Me: …Okay. We can do that.

Client: Why do you sound so hesitant?

Me: Well… the colors you’re asking for aren’t complementary, and if you don’t want the images to be distracting maybe we’d be better off sticking to grayscale.

Client: Hey if this is too much of a task for you and you have a problem with turning this gray boring poster into something more out there then I’ll just find someone else.

Me: It’s fine I can do it! I’m just giving my advice. If you want me to change it, I will – it’s your poster.

Client: You’re damned right it is.

They printed them in black and white.
