A mutual friend referred a client to me. The job was to make a logo that was basically a redux of the guy’s old logo. After coming up with the initial draft, I got a hold of the client via email, and supplied the images.
Me: I just recreated the thing from scratch, but I had to use a different font because we couldn’t get in touch with the previous designer to find out what it was. I’m also giving you two versions, one with the FB link and one without. Let me know if you don’t like anything here or if you want to make some changes.
Client: Great. Thanks!
He paid and a few days later the mutual friend told me he hated the designs.
Me: Hi – I’ve been told that you didn’t like the designs. I’m more than willing to adjust them based on your feedback. What didn’t you like?
Client: I’m not going to give you my criticisms because it’s pointless. I’ll do it myself.
