Grafisch Ontwerp

The bad client

A bad client is someone who claims to delegate responsibility, but really doesn’t, or then takes it away. […] A bad client notices that other companies that are making money have globe logos (or swooshes, or elliptical orbits)—and wants one too. A bad client bosses designers as well as his or her underlings, around. A bad client thinks the software does all the work… so it should be easy to throw together a dozen more layout options overnight. A bad client’s assistants have fonts and scanners and can put off together as well as you. Or if not quite as well, for a lot less money. And he or she thinks that it will be good enough.

— Ellen Shapiro, The Graphic Designer’s Guide to Clients

If it happens to you, you know what to do: run away, as fast as you can!
