Client asks for redesign to look more like XYZ site.

I deliver a redesign to look more like XYZ site.

Client wants the site to look more like his old site. But different. Gives extensive instructions on how to design his website to his liking.

At some point, I think I'll be owing him money for his design/dev services, not the other way around.

What is it with these people?

    Ask them one thing:
    If you go to the bakery, do you tell them how to make your bread, or do you buy whatever the fuck they are baking for you?

    Maybe in a nicer way than my filthy fingers typed it, tho.

    I get this all the time. My personal favorite is when they say they hate their current site and want a whole new look, so you make them something clean and modern based off what they said they wanted. Then they hate it and basically want their current site rebuilt with the color of one button changed! 😂🙈

    @CodingPrincess @stackodev but it's changed. They don't like change. You just need to spend 100+ hours changing colours and fonts around.
