There are understanding clients, pushy clients, what -the –hell- you know clients, sulky clients, sly clients, make-it-free clients…. well the variety is endless. The most difficult ones to contend are those game clients. ‘Game’ clients love to play games with us. They say what they want and we create a theme or concept based on that and they tumble down the whole wall. Not once or twice but many times and the end product of our creation that we face is actually too dramatically different than what the client had proposed in the beginning.
Many times I wonder why they play such senseless games instead of coming to the mute point… and then I realize that they are actually confused people who give a lot of premium to their own intelligence! Games that people play! Phew!
Anyways I take it up as a challenge to improve myself and align my creativity to their changing requirements. And for this I am indebted to all the clients. They push me to the edge and i gotta learn to fly.
