Hi everyone, I'll start by saying I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year! I hope to post more in here this year for sure. (all good in hindsight I'm sure!) I'm hoping that some of you can maybe help me with a situation I have with an ongoing client, I work from their offices 1 day every week. I'm not going into depths about who they are etc but would hope that from how I explain the relationship that some of you can maybe relate to this type of situation! Come April, I will have been working with them for a year. I have managed to turn their 'brand' round in my time with them, they produce a product so labels/web/any public branding has all been changed so it can be sold in a few of the leading supermarkets. The label design was initially started by another designer who left them in the lurch and I took over and completed the job, building a brand from the design that they produced. I had supplied them, as we were still in the early stages, with an alternative label but they felt that the process was too far gone to change now. Which in my eyes it wasn't at all but I've just stuck myself into it and got on with it! I can only see that things would maybe have been easier if I'd had a better base design to start with but that was sods law and I had to deal with what I'd been given. My biggest issue is a difference in opinion with a couple of people in the office - this big bosses too! Not any project in particular, it seems to crop up with most things whether it's posters, clothing items etc. This generally comes down to what I think is tacky, unprofessional and when my name is associated with the brand as being their designer, I don't really want to be producing. I hope that doesn't sound too above anyone else as I definitely don't mean it like that, I am grateful to have an ongoing client I just want to try and make them see what is professional and unprofessional. They use Vista Print for most things, even though I have proven to them that I can get them print for cheap and a better quality finish as I run a printer a couple of days a week too. They call a fun company who don't take themselves too seriously however, their brand has grown significantly in the past year and as more and more of the general public come to hear of them I believe they can still be fun but need to do it in a more professional way. I know these days most people experiment with Vista Print and I'm not saying this is their only flaw, I just hope it gives you a 'bigger picture' of the way they work. I could probably go on for hours about wee things but I'd rather hope that someone is or has been in this same situation and can shed a bit of light as to how to deal with it. Thanks guys!
