We finished a huge branding project with a very short deadline for a well-known and important new client. We worked nights and weekends for a month straight to finish everything in time. The client was super happy with everything and agreed to our price for the overtime and short deadline.
Four months later they still hadn’t paid us. I call and the manager tells me that he can pay us only if we agree that the quoted price now includes the taxes (that is a 20% cut on our price). Of course, we said no. It has been another three months since then. They’ve paid only 30% of the total price so far.
They keep calling for new designs.
