, ,

    Are you and your client a perfect match?

    There are the clients we love, and the clients we'd love to forget. So, how do you know before it's too late? Take this quiz to find out if you and your client are a match made in heaven or a nightmare in the making.

    A perfect match!

    Congratulations, you've found the perfect client. Just how great are they? Well, from day one, you've been the expert and the price you charge is the price they're willing to pay. At each step in the process, the client has provided constructive criticism while staying true to their original vision and timeline. They're willing to speak their mind and always back it up with concrete examples and rock solid reasoning. Enjoy it because this is the type of client you never forget!

    A nightmare relationship!

    How do we put this gently? We recommend getting a stress ball and repeating a soothing mantra ASAP because this wont be easy. This is one of "those" clients. We all know the type - close minded, unable to handle criticism, and downright disrespectful of your designs. But don't despair, we're sure you'll come out of this partnership stronger. Right...?

    It could always be worse...

    It's not the best relationship, but it's not terrible either. This is likely one of those jobs that comes and goes without much fanfare but at the end of the day, you get paid, so who cares, right? Sometimes it's best to just put your head down and get it done. A more perfect client will certainly come sooner than later!
