Graphical design quotes - morfizm

Client: "Legal has informed us that our bacon bits don't have enough real bacon to comply with the FDA standards, so we can't say the product has 'bacon.'"

Me: "How much real bacon does the FDA require?"

Client: "2 percent. So if you could just put 'great bacony taste' or something, that would be perfect."

"Can we have some spare blank pages on the web site? Just so that we can fill it up later when we feel the need."

* * *

"Can you make it sound more purple?"

LOL, these are good! :) About blank pages on the site - brilliant ;) My favorite personal experience was when the client was complaining because the ad I did had some blank space - meaning u know in between graphics/words there actually was - gasp - white space! He wanted something on every square inch of the page because "we paid for the space" - the concept of usefulness of white space was totally lost ;) I told him if we do this, a person's eye will not know where to go. No use :)

лет до 25 у меня такое каждый рабочий день было не по разу )

про blank pages -- ну, не прямо так, но очень похоже -- было буквально в конце прошлой недели.

клиент разбил один раздел с превьюшками на 4 раздела. в одном из получившихся вышла всего 1 превьюшка (буээээ), а ещё в одном и вовсе пусто.

"мы сами потом добавим".
