A good friend of mine is a graphic designer and I can hardly believe some of the things he occasionally tells me about clients. I always knew he was telling the truth of course but it turns out the epidemic is far worse than I thought. Relationships with clients are always tricky, neither of you are mind readers, so what you come up with and what the client sees in their head may not always be the same thing. And then comes the feedback. The series Sharp Suits was born out of a bunch of Irish designers’ frustrations with that aspect of the field – clients talking complete and utter nonsense. They call it a “creative catharsis” and you’ll understand why when you see the images. However, the experiment did more than just let the designers release some anger, all proceeds from their art show went to Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
