I can relate.
A few years ago I reached out to a web designer with a nice portfolio.
(They had good design skills, used white space appropriately, and overall, I just liked their style).
I was looking forward to working with them, and to be frank, working with them was GREAT.
They were responsive.
They answered my emails.
They understood EXACTLY what I wanted from my web design.
But then I saw the finished product…
I ended up paying a ton of money for a design that was unusable.
It was so bad, in fact, that if I wanted someone else to use it, I would have had to bribe them, heh.
But now I want to hear from you…
Have you ever hired a web designer and felt cheated?
Are you a web designer and dealt with a client from hell?
I’d love for you to share your story in the comments.
(One note: please refrain from using names of companies and people).
Oh, and if you know anyone who had a similar horror story, tell them to come share it in the comments here. We’d like to see responses from as many people as possible!
