I've got up to get a quick advice on what to do in situation if
Someone hires you for lets say a sales page design, tells you how would he liked the header to be, the footer, the background, the $100 bills flying around, even tiny things like bullet points etc.. And then you quote him a price, take upfront deposit and start working on it.
You collect required stock images, get the layout done, get the colours as he asked and create a basic header portion with the header text etc.. probably something like this http://www.ask-me-about.com/start.jpg
And when you show it to him saying "this is just the start", he doesn't even comment on it, rather reveals that he isnt interested in a web 2.0 shiny sales page anymore, he is willing to get a wordpress theme done (in the same price) and with a totally different concept of design.. probably something like this http://18.104.22.168/images/black-mag...me/preview.jpg
That's not the end, when you try to tell him that its a different thing, he says he can do it himself by pulling out free backgrounds. If you try to tell him that you are a professional designer and doesnt use free stuff, he threatens you to refund his money or else he will post in your sales thread.
You obviously will try to shut him up and issue a refund?
Ok, you refunded him..
Now what if he still posts in your sales thread telling people you're rude and not to work with you ?
What will ya do ?
And is it any professional to pull in freebies to create your artwork?
