What did Ventifact ever do to get all his comments removed from my sight? Geez, maybe mine will be next! Is Scott the arbiter? I know l would much rather deal with ventifact than coolie/plasma/etc. and their misanthropic critics like bosox! End the discrimination now!
Right Scott, but the conversation you're not showing is the one where the designer tried to figure out what-on-earth the client wanted.
Designer: So what did you have in mind?
Client: I don't know. You're the designer.
Designer: Do you know what you want it to say?
Client: Whatever you think is good.
Designer: Um. Well, what are you selling?
Client: This. That. I don't want to emphasize any one thing.
Designer: Ooook. Do you have a color scheme?
Client: Black and white, we don't want to spend money.
On second thought maybe the man just uses something like a Rorschach's inkblot to actually find out what does the boss want.
I believe oftne firms hire ad agencies, but their management just want them to use to bring their own ad ideas to life. Is there an other way how to explain, why the most ads are so bad? :)
