We don’t usually take submissions like this one, but it’s such a glimpse into madness, it couldn’t go ignored.

Oh my god. It’s hard to believe this client exists.

    Client: Okay, I want my site’s content to be edgy, to stand out. I’m thinking all black text on a black background.

    Me: I’m not sure that’s going to really stand out much.

    Client: Why did you get into web design if you have no imagination? Just try to picture it for more than a minute and you’ll see why it’ll work.

    Bahahah.

    Client: Can you put one of those sand boxes on the website?

    Me: I’m sorry, what boxes?

    Client: Sand boxes. With the little dots inside. So people can take pictures.

    Me: Um… QR codes?

    Client: YES! One of those on the site!

    Me: Well, what would it link to?

    Client: The website!

    Me: But… they’re already on the site.

    Client: Oh, I see.

    Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.

    Me: What black pen?

    Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.

    Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?

    Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.

  10. clientsfromhell:

    Client: Can you make it less black, like half black?

    Me: Do you mean grey?

    Client: No. Less black.

    Me: Well there’s black or there’s no black.

    Client: We want black, we just want the black to be less black. Like half.
