I’m a web designer making a mockup of a site for a client who has literally no idea how websites or mockups work. He’s having me make a bunch of content changes within the mockup – even though I’m not a writer and this is making the design process take about 3x longer. Then again, I’m being paid by the hour so I’m not complaining complain. Still, he can’t seem to grasp that the mockup is just a static picture, not a dynamic website.
Me: I will put those animations and hover states in the website. This is an image so that you can approve the look of the website. Once you okay this, then I will move again with coding the page.
Client: Well at least make the links work.
This may be the straw that broke the camel’s back, though:
Client: Could you make the text darker?
Me: It’s already dark blue. The only way I can really make it darker is to make it black.
Client: Do that. Also, please remove the space between these two sentences.
I did, and sent him back a new image.
Client: I don’t see any change. You didn’t change the text, and it still needs to be darker.
It’s black. It doesn’t get any darker. The space is deleted.
Currently banging my head on the desk.
