Ok... wait WTF?



  • After going back and forth for over six weeks, making designs, prototypes and revisions to the look and feel, navigation, etc.. to this particullary annoying client's website, we get an email with the title "Finally these are really the last design changes".

    Then the body goes something like this:

    "Everthing is beautifull now. Please change the Titles to the blue we had before. This gray is boring.. bla bla.. move it 1 pixel to the left... bla bla.. the top menu make it 1% less dark. bla bla, I'm not sure about the magnifying glass on the search button, but I guess it's fine".

    Then...

    "Also, you need the change the header, the logo and the name of the company. Here attached is the logo of our company. And we are not called DumbAss Com, we are Bitches Corp."

    us...
    "Mmmm ok.. wait, WTF? Whom have been billing all this time? Is this an episode of Twilight Zone? Did I wake up in the wrong body?"

    She..
    "That's us, but we have another company too. That's what the site is for."

    Us...
    "And you failed to mention this over the last 6 weeks, because... ?

    She...
    "It doesn't matter, just change the logo and the name of the comapany"

    Us..
    "Ok, you know that the whole design is based on the corporate colors of your company 1. This logo is completely different (and ugly as hell), and the whole corporate image of company 2, does not fit the current look and feel? We will need to redesing the whole thing. We can keep navigation and such, but the whole color scheme and styles need to change."

    She..
    "ok do it then"

    Us..
    "That will cost you XXXX"

    She
    "WHAT? WHY?, THE DESIGN IS READY.

    NO. DO IT FOR FREE OR JUST CHANGE THE LOGO"

    Us..
    "As you wish".

    WTF did just happened?

    I smell a rat.

    wasn't me



  • I've had this happen SEVERAL times. I'll go in and do a design only to have the person who commished the design go "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT? FIX IT NAO!" and I go "That'll be $20 a change!" and they go "FUCK NO I WANNA REFUND!" and I tell them the cheque is already cashed. Thats when they start to consider suing me... With no reason.



  •  Yeah so my homepage is ready now but I'd really like to have a "add to cart" button on it. Can you add it? It's just a cart button, you could do that for free!

    Sure.

    But making it do something costs extra.
