Unfortunately, a design firm can’t run itself – its lifeblood belongs in the clients. Unfortunately, many design firms have to deal with “less than stellar” clientele. www.infographicworld.com...
has created a well-timed infographic outlining just a few of the most common disaster clients, entitled “Game of Clients”.
We start our journey off with the house “Budget”. This client isn’t paying a cent more than what the original budget detailed. House “Indecision” may be one of the worst in the land, with hand-holding necessary throughout the entire process. The House “Intrusion” will quickly become a frequent visitor, vying for the #1 spot on your speed dial – even in the middle of the night, much to your mother’s chagrin. The house “Delays” just likes to work at their own schedule – with no regard to the time you’ve put into it. Then we venture to the house “Unknown” – be careful, as this one expects you to “Just get it”. House “Broke” will have you working for shillings, and house “Hopeful” will string you along for the ride. The most intimidating, however, may be the house “Committee”, which may have you buried in meetings until next summer. House “Time” will always need it yesterday, and house “Expert”, the most harrowing of all, will make sure you do everything their way, since they’re the expert. Bonus points for this one if you see the Google degree!
