:::
If you have been working with clients at all you know they can be a tricky breed. A lot of the time they have something already made up in their mind of what they want their end product to look like. And most of the time it's very subjective things.

The thing that I can't stand is when they take an existing design that isn't strong and they just want to make it 'prettier.' In our field we call that, "Putting lipstick on a pig." Because it's not re-thinking the project, but rather just giving it a visual face-lift.

Hope you enjoy and wear the shirt so people give us designers some respect again.
