First Design Job Debriefing

First off, I’m not dead. I kinda fell out of love with blogging for a while, but I think we can work on our relationship. I’m sorry for ignoring you, and I just hope that in the future you will come to forgive me. /hug

More on topic, I “recently” (and by that I mean a month ago) finished my first official web design job. I’m still debating whether or not I wanna post the link here, partly because I am not 100% satisfied with my work, partly because I am going to bash the client a tad bit, and partly because my name is on it and I don’t wanna associate myself with… well, myself.

So originally I had written several paragraphs for this post, but I hit a block and realized it was as boring to read as it was to write, so please enjoy this abridged version:

*Client wanted to pay only half of what I quoted
*Client was slow to respond to emails
*Job ended up taking three months instead of two weeks

Lessons learned:

*Never work without a contract, no matter how small the job
*Don’t forget that respect goes both ways
*CASH UP FRONT FOR FUCK’S SAKE

Not gonna go into more detail. Too scatter-brained. Bleh.
