An Infographic on The “Horrible Web Design Client”

Web design may be seen by many people as a creative endeavor. And it is. Designing a web site entails a lot of creativity and not just in terms of aesthetic implementation. It also entails a keen sense of design because a web site should actually work and function effectively and not just be beautiful. Creating a great web site absolutely requires collaboration between the web designer and the client or customer. It is the web designer’s responsibility to realize the vision and goals of the client for the web site he has commissioned the designer to work on. But it is easier said than done.

Anyone who has been involved in a job or profession that requires some level of servicing a client will know that customers can be hard to work with sometimes. In this infographic from the online publication Top Web Design Schools, the “difficult customer” is dissected and explained. It’s a handy little infographic that will prove useful to any web designer who is preparing himself for the eventuality of meeting a difficult client. With the information contained in the infographic, it will hopefully give web designers an idea of what to expect and thus better prepare for such clients.

    Cheers for the blog post, i think there really are some extremely interesting statistics showcased in this blog post, however i don’t necessarily agree with the results. I personally do not think salaries in web design are based on what degree you have, degrees in media are usually outdated and not up to the industry standard, salary’s are based on skills not a piece of paper saying you can design.

    Great post. I had few clients from hell in the past and that was a great experience and lesson how to avoid stresfull situations in the future. Now I know that work schedule and contract is the key. I always inform customers how I work and how they should co-operate with me to achieve the best results. Anyway – I wish all web designers good luck and clients from hell move to heaven!
