If men are from Mars and women from Venus, then clients must be from Earth and designers from Mercury. At least that's what they'd have us believe with their feedback that only a Nasa scientist could decipher.

This nonsense feedback usually splits clients into one of two groups. Clients are either completely unsure of what they want and believe their graphic designer is a never-aging mind reader.

Or, they know exactly what they want. In fact these clients seem to know more about graphic design than the person they've hired. And further, they have zero confidence the designer can complete the job with her own two hands.

I'm not quite sure which type of idiot client is worse, but I do know how frustrating they are to deal with. So we thought it'd be fun to make light of our plight and round up some of the most ridiculous comments we get from clients.

The sad thing is, these comments happen over and over again! Enjoy!
