Last month I decided to try graphic design and signed up for 99designs where I won my first contest. Now I have to do the design handover but my client is driving me crazy.
She keeps commenting on the designs I showed a month ago and asks me to fix things that I’ve already fixed multiple times. I upload file after file but she doesn’t even look at the new corrected images. I don’t think she knows there is a design handover page.
She refused to buy one single stock image even though I had previously warned her she’d have to purchase it.
Last week she asked me to include her barcodes. I told her to send them via email. Since then she has sent me at least 5 more messages asking me to fix things that are already fixed but she didn’t send the damned barcodes. And she keeps telling me to include them. HOW?!
She wanted her book to be spiral bound so I changed it but she didn’t even look at it. She kept commenting on the old version asking me to change the binding. In the end I made a collage with all 13 spiral bound book mockups I had previously uploaded. SHE SAW IT!
I asked her to tell me what exactly is it that she likes/dislikes about my designs. In return she just hit the “like” button on some of my oldest designs.
Last night she emailed me to tell me her computer crashed and I’d have to wait more for the barcodes (what a surprise).
I sent her a long and detailed reply with pictures of the newest designs, asking her what’s wrong with them. At least this way she might see them. Wish me luck!
