Video: People React To The Ridiculous Requests That Designers Have To Deal With
By John Yong, 13 Jul 2016
Terrible clients come in all shapes and forms, but in the following videos by Toggl, it comes in form of suit-wearing businessman called ‘Matt’.
You see, Matt is what designers would call a ‘Client from Hell’—the reason? He expects their time to be free.
Creatives often have run-ins with clients like Matt during their line of work—they would request them to work for exposure, or they would use too much of a designer’s time and not compensate him or her properly.
The result?—creative agencies and designers bleeding money for the time wasted.
To highlight how ridiculous the situation is for creatives, Toggl took the streets of London with hidden cameras to film how businesses and store owners would react to some of the outrageous requests that designers constantly deal with.
From making ridiculous design changes at brick and mortar stores to asking for a free taxi ride, coffee, and lunch, Matt is exactly the type of client that creatives should avoid.
If you wish to protect yourself from clients like Matt, you might want to give Toggl a shot. It is a simple time tracking app that helps creative agencies stay profitable by letting them keep track of where their hours are going.
