Clients can be a real pain in the ass sometimes, all designers know that. It’s almost impossible to find a perfect client and most of the time we work for stubborn, complicated people who make our designing process very difficult. The perfect client doesn’t exist, and that’s a fact! If you were unlucky and had to deal with a bad client, then you will relate with these 20 clients quotes turned into creative posters!
After a hard day of work and never-ending discussions with annoying clients, we can relax and enjoy reading about funny situations told by other designers.
Creative designers turned the funniest clients from hell quotes into original graphics and made these funny posters. Check them out below, have a good laugh and be inspired by these posters’ designs.
“Can we dial down the CHILL factor… and then dial up the FUN factor by around 25%” is a poster that turns this funny client quote into a source of laughter. It has a dynamic diagonal design which uses the right typography, colors and illustrations and dials up the “fun factor” up to 100%.
As a designer, you must have heard the sentence “Can we just use the image from the internet” plenty of times from your clients. Copyright is important and so is being original in your design. This designer turned the client’s quote into a fun, original and explicit poster.
If you are up for some more fun quotes turned into great posters, then you might want to have a look at this example – “We feel that red isn’t right for Christmas”. If red isn’t right for Christmas then maybe a monochrome design, like this poster uses is more fit to describe the joy of the winter holidays. The black background along with the sad, fallen snowman and the client’s quote make a great and fun poster.
Sometimes you get questions from your clients that you do not even know how to begin explaining to them why it is not possible, just like this example. All in all, they managed to make a great and fun poster to describe the situation.
If you liked the previous example, this one will surely continue the series of fun questions clients ask. This funny poster uses a pixelated background which goes well with the quote.
What do you do when you are using a minimalist design which your clients wished for, and their feedback is “too much white space”? The answer is, you make a fun poster about it!
This example will surely brighten up your day. This poster presents one of the funniest quotes you’ll ever hear from one of your clients. It uses different sizes of typography to present the quote in a funny way, along with a picture of a monkey painting with its hands. If “I did this at home with Microsoft Paint” and “can you make it look like this” weren’t funny enough, check out the smaller quote in the footer saying “and I need it tomorrow”.
“We love your style! Try a thinner black line, lots more color… and lose the texture. If you could make your characters look more…em…normal that’d be great. Oh… and we need it for TOMORROW before noon.” is a client’s way to tell you he or she loves your design, but not so much. This designer managed to turn this quote into a fun poster.
This is yet another funny example of a funny quote turned into a poster. “The target audience is males and females aged zero and up” means basically everyone living on Earth, and this designer surely knew how to make a great poster out of it.
This continues the series of fun quotes with one that will definitely put a smile on your face. “I really like the colour but can you change it?” is probably one of the most popular quotes designers hear from their clients.
Check out this next example which will definitely put a smile on your face. All of you typography experts out there will probably relate to this!
Using different fonts is a trend, but you have to be more specific than “can you use more fonts” because there are million font families you could use in a design and this is exactly what this funny poster is trying to say.
This designer definitely had enough before making this funny poster. Check out how much the charge is for different situations.
You must have heard this one a lot also when your clients find what they want on the internet and get too focused on that particular design, that they forget you can probably get inspired and design something that best fits their interests – “We want it to look like this but don’t copy it, just make it different enough but keep it the same”
Well, if a globe and a passport are not enough to represent the idea of travel, then what is? Check out this fun poster which will surely put a smile on your face.
This designer has probably had enough with feedback that doesn’t say much about what the client thinks about your design. Check out this fun poster!
If you liked the previous example then you’ll most likely enjoy this one as well. Check it out and see if maybe you can debrief on the debrief.
Just how fast is your Paint? This is yet another example of funny questions clients can ask and this designer turned it out into a cool poster.
“Irish people can’t read italics” is a quote that was turned into a funny poster by a designer who has probably had enough with inconclusive feedback.
Last but not least, this poster presents a client’s quote who does not know what he wants, but he’ll know when he sees it.

“Do you need the new text before we launch the website?”
Hahahah I experienced five of these just this week alone hahahaha
How about this one?
1:00 PM: I need you to drop everything to get this done by end of day tomorrow. We don’t have the final copy yet, and no photos (can you get these off the internet? Pick something that says Europe) and we’re not sure if we want a flyer or trifold. Can you lay something out and we will let you know if that’s the direction we want? Did we mention, you need to drop everything and get this done?
4:00 PM: Are you going to get something to us today to review ahead of time? We need it by 5:00
6:00PM: It’s not what we were looking for- need to redesign tomorrow. We will write new copy and send you the photos in the morning. This is important so we’ll need you to put everything else on hold and get this done by end of the day.
The next day was very similar. 🙂 You just have to laugh.
AWESOME! Restores my faith in my work and that I am not alone in dealing with Idiots!!
My best client feedback was…..
” can you just jazz it up?”
It’s sad to think that I have personally heard about half of these comments to my design presentations. But I like the one about charging more for the client to wrk with you! 🙂
LOL….. it happened when your client is in Grandpa zone
haha they are awesome. i will add mine soon, my client always asks for options like “send me some options of thumbnail borders in 3px 4px 5px”
