Patrick Cabral is a freelance art director based in Manila, Phillipines. His work is pure love for typography and lettering. Beeing a truly master of ornamental forms and calligraphy he paints and draws with all materials he got in his hands. We especially like the grotesk but modern alphabet he was doing and the love script on a poetry calligraphy slamed background.

Know No Pride - How to Tell a Client They’re Wrong

Last week I received this great articleI could not help myself but to share it (though i cut out a few words). So from Clients From Hell to the world: 

A freelancer should be able to help steer things in another direction before the hubris-fueled project crashes and burns.

  1. Be sure the client is wrong before you tell them they are. It’s important to distinguish between a bad decision and a decision you wouldn’t make.

  2. Ask questions. Understand what the client is trying to accomplish with their decisions.

  3. Gently explain why they’re wrong but avoid using the word ‘wrong’ if you can. 

  4. Suggest alternatives that will achieve the client’s goals. 

  5. Flaunt your expertise. Anecdotal evidence and proven experience are the most convincing tools at your disposal.

  6. Be direct if it’s necessary. Some clients may appreciate it. Others clients, less so.

  7. Be graceful in defeat. There are times when being right will cost you more than being wrong. 

  8. Whatever your argument, justify with the client’s own interests and goals.

If this tips don’t seem to work out for you freelancers, well (as James Victore says) “give ‘em hell”.
