However much I try to make things as clear as possible for my clients, I guess no-one is perfect!
And what seems to me (from my experienced design perspective) the most straight forward and obvious thing, can of course be quite complex to understand without the benefit of ingrained familiarity.
I had similar client experiences with two completely separate projects earlier this year, which at first glance appeared to be issues with the print. . .
I have done two business card jobs recently, both quite different. . . .
I met Anna, when we were both visitors of the Ladies connect networking group, held each month at the waterski centre in Cliff, near Tamworth.
As a Polish lady who also has a slight hearing difficulty, in a room full of English speaking women, she very bravely stood up and took her turn explaining her business venture. . . .
. . . . and passed me a referral, (after hearing mine) to assist with a logo and business card design for her new cleaning business.
Another great project to tell you about this week, interspersed with a plenty of graphic design tips to spur you on in your own projects.
I first met Alison when my children and hers went to a mother and toddler group in Belper, Derbyshire, oh a lot of years ago now.
I originally did her a quote for producing a small brochure for her horsehair jewellery business, but at the time she decided not to proceed with it in the end.
The first time I heard from her more recently was in reply to an email I sent out during 2014 . . .
. . . letting people know about the FREE website offer that I did in conjunction with my business partners at DBN.
“I don’t need a website for me” she replied. . . ” but I have a friend who could be interested”
So I chatted to the friend, and ended up doing a great project and website last year (http://www.lindawildideas.co.uk/blog/2014/10/and-the-runners-and-riders-are/).
Then a few weeks back, Alison got in touch with me again.
