I have a client who absolutely cannot imagine anything and needs to see everything. Recent requests include:
Client: Please visualize how this existing page of our website would look if this text was changed from “buy our product here” to “buy this product here.”
Client: Edit this screenshot of our homepage and replace this picture here.
Client: Change it back to the old picture, but zoom in a bit.
Client: Can you show us different options? What would it look like with the new picture and old text; as well as old picture and new text in a different font size?
Every single change, no matter how minor, needs to be ~visualized~ in an edited screenshot first. It usually takes about five revisions with at least three alternative versions until a minor edit gets signed off on. This also usually happens mere days before a big launch of a new product, which, of course, also needs its own subsite. Said subsite will go through the exact same process.
They always pay on time and don’t have any problems with paying for three hours of work for a simple text change that could’ve been done in five minutes. So really, money is not the issue, but this is taking years off my life.
