Client designed logos

I had the worst ‘logo design’ experience today. Last week I submitted several options to *client* and had done my best to steer the design in a somewhat simplified direction and it comes back with. “I don’t really like option 1 & 2 (damn, they were the best ones), let’s merge options 4, 5 and 6 together!!!!”

Yes that’s right. Feet (Skeletal style), red sore spots, healing hands (Hands are tricky and worth avoiding in logos if at all possible) and a specified position for the type: above the arm and IN THE FREAKING ARM.

So I did it.

And they were happy. “This is what I envisioned, now can you make the hands glow so it looks like it’s healing!”

I could’ve cried.

(Just trust us. Really it’ll be better)

    I’ve been writing radio advertising for clients for years and sometimes you just have to realise that clients will get the advertising they deserve … or in your case … they’ll get the logo they deserve.

    It amazes me that people who would refuse to let others without experience wander in and tell them how to do their job, will see no problem in telling others how to do theirs.
