Ok the client wanted a simple tshirt design with words.
In a nutshell: They gave me a few inspiration pix and a font they liked, I created a few versions. I told them they could have 1 revision. They asked to add photos, and I said send me the photos. They sen photos, I added them and they responded that they no longer liked the font, so I said I could supply them with more font options for an additional fee (since they had used their revision).
then they hit me with this
" I feel like I have done a lot of the creating and finding the necessary stuff for the design. I was hoping to share my thought with an explanation of my interpretation and then see what you create from that. I felt I had to guide the creative process too much. "
… I felt like this was a normal process of trying to figure out what the client wants.
Of course this is on upwork, so I’m trying to figure out what to say so I don’t get a bad review. How do I explain to the client that the artist requires direction?
