72 Posters Of Ridiculous Design Feedback From Clients

As a designer and developer, I know firsthand how intense and uncreative a dialogue with a client can be. Clients often times lack the vision or understanding required to share with the designer exactly what they want he or she to create. When you take on a client, there is a whole process of figuring out what it is that they want exactly. That’s pretty much what the job entails. I mean, anyone can learn to code or design, but managing a creative and lucrative dialogue with the client is a skill that not everyone has. More than often when you think you have created something that is spot on in line with what the client wants, you get some insane design feedback from the client which makes you feel like you never want to take on another client again.

It’s not that you as a designer don’t understand what the client wants, it’s the incredibly foggy vision the client keeps morphing into something imaginary and weird. Of course, as a designer, I see it from only one side of the story. However, when you look at the design feedback that some clients give, you have to start wondering if they themselves even know what they are after.

Mark Shanley and Paddy Treacy of Mark and Paddy decided to take their design feedback and create some rather hilarious posters out of them. They call the collection Sharp Suits. A couple grew into several, and before they knew it, they had amassed 72 insane posters that will make your head start spinning. Some people just don’t know what design is, while others have such vague descriptions that you start wondering if they are high or just clueless. Have a look at this incredibly interesting design feedback poster series, and tell me you didn’t get a good laugh after checking them out. Design feedback like this is what you want to show on your wall when your new customers dodge over to start the collaboration. That way, you will ensure that their design feedback is not as out there as your previous client, or maybe that is too much for me to promise.

    12 years in design. I’m doubling over laughing. “The text is in Latin.” How about “Can you make it look just like their website… Like, JUST like it?”

    My boss actually brought in a drawing from her daughter and said “Isn’t this great? Can we do something like this?”

    So I don’t want to hear any more complaining from any of you.
