How a web design goes to hell

Web design horror stories

A collection of web design horror stories

If you’ve ever done any freelance creative work, you can relate to the plight of the designer in this comic. If you’ve ever been on the other end of hiring a designer to build a website for you, this just might give you some insight into what it’s like to be a web designer. Have you ever requested some minor changes that grew into an endless list? Or maybe you design your own sites, and you’re not sure who to ask for feedback — or how.

Well this cartoon from The Oatmeal is for you. Read it, internalize the message, and DON’T act like “the client” in any of these stories.

Have you been guilty of any of the web-design-client crimes mentioned in that cartoon? Ever designed a site for someone else who was their own worst enemy? Let us know in the comments section below.
