Jeffrey Zeldman gives us his 20 reasons why you may want to say no to that next web design project. Though obviously meant to be a humorous commentary on the unpredictability of managing web design projects, some of the signs happen all too often. Then again, they are all based on actual client experiences.
Here are some of our favorites, based on our own experience managing web design projects:
- Client takes six months to respond to your proposal, but doesn’t change his due date.
- Your favorite client, for whom you have done fine work in the past, gets a new boss.
- Shortly before you ship, the company fires your client. An overwhelmed assistant takes the delivery. The new site never launches. Two years later, a new person in your old client’s job emails you to invite you to redesign the site.
