As a website designer the worst kind of clients are those who think they know what they want.
They start by telling you how to design the site down to the last detail – what colours they want, what layout they want, including all the copy for the site, which usually starts with “Welcome to My Website”. Then they present you with a logo that was designed by a graphic artist without any consideration for fitting it into a website design.
Throughout the entire process of design, they continue to give their opinions, often contradictory, and change their minds about what they want. They are never satisfied.
My advice to this type of client is – if you think you know better than the expert then why bother hiring one.
Do it yourself.
