I was working on a website/logo/rebranding project. The client wanted her logo to be a nice medium blue. Cool. Easy.

While working on the website:

Client: Can you make the header black? I want a really dark header.

Black makes the logo look almost neon. She didn’t see anything wrong with that. This was the first sign that things weren’t going to go well.

I did some work to make sure everything fit together, making sure to pick fonts and colors that work with what she wanted without clashing too much.

Me: Okay, I have everything together. Log in and have a look.

Client: Great! I’ve had a look and I made a *few* changes.

I had a look, and everything was a nightmare. She’d changed the background to a purple that looked like old wine, with bright white block text in bold.  There was no difference between her headers and her text body.  Random seafoam colors littered the screen.

I cringed, and then did my best to alter it slightly. I found a color that matched the logo in tone, instead of clashing like something from an 80s sitcom.

After I showed her what I’d done, she polled fifteen of her friends for their opinions. This caused her to lecture me about why her design was better – for three hours.

I’ve since dropped said client.
