I have a full
time job at a well-known agency as a UX designer. I took on a freelance gig and
I have been working with this client for the last 6 months.
Today is the last day we’ll be working together.
Client: We’ve seen standard blue underline link text work very well for links. If we’re going to use buttons, we should make sure they’re in a contrasting color so that people will click on them.
Me: A clearly designed button tends to do that work on its own, in my professional opinion. Using a contrasting color will make it stand out, but it will also be out of place on the page.
Client: Until you’ve read the studies FROM HARVARD that I have, we go with what I know works and not what you think is an eye sore on an interface.
