Client Demands Are Just About Kicking Off

I’m a Brazilian graphic designer and as you may imagine, a lot of us take soccer (and the World Cup) very seriously. Our team games are like holidays around here.

I get a call from a client minutes before an important World Cup game, asking for a new design for some motion graphics.

Me: “Can this be delivered this evening?”

Client: “It absolutely cannot wait, since we absolutely have to post our video within the hour!”

I took my assistant from the bar and we ran to deliver a thirty-second, easy-to-do video in less than an hour. Okay, that’s fine, it happens; it is not an official holiday, after all.

The client wrote me five days later asking for some changes. At game time.
