Four Warning Signs Of A Client From Hell
By Sophia Hyder, 06 Sep 2016
Clients from hell aren’t as obvious as many designers wish they would be. They don’t appear to look like the devil or carry around a neon sign that tells you they’re awful to work with.
Fret not, as there are always signs that will allude to them being a client you wouldn’t want to work with.
Scroll down to find out what you should be looking out for. Above all, follow your gut, because it’s probably right.
Even though a client is the one enlisting your services, they should rightly have a goal and clear idea in mind. If they don’t, you can be sure you’ll embark on a wild and directionless project that will leave you frustrated.
This unreasonable client will expect you to dedicate all your time and effort to them. Sure, they’re paying for your skills and time, but that does not mean they can take advantage of that fact by expecting you to be at their beck and call.
The relationship you have with your client is a professional one, where both parties are equals. If a client looks down on you or treats you like you’re less than, it’s time to drop them.
Devalues good work
The working relationship between you and your client should be a “mutually beneficial” one. This means that if a client dilutes the value of your work and insists on paying a lower fee for it, turn around.
