Pixel prostitution

The relationship between designer and client isn’t always easy. Part of the job a good designer has is to educate the client. Sometimes though, there are simply clients that are not compatible, and it’s essential to exit gracefully from the relationship. Also, respect yourself enough to only give clients work you are proud of. That’s good advice - don’t let them treat you like a pixel prostitute.

This is the story of a guy who saw a good friend of his post about clients on Twitter. The messages hit a chord with him, but didn’t think his answer (or subsequent “advice") would fit within 140 characters. We now commence with the ranting.

A great post and a great discussion in the comments too.
