You send off the draft, praying the revision requests are minor and won’t take up too much of your valuable time.
Time really does equal money for you, and constant revisions on the same project is time you could’ve spent on the next one.
The revisions are extensive and confusing. It doesn’t take long for you to realise that every single change request is because the client omitted necessary information at the beginning.
They failed to tell you that their business is 100% sustainable or that they only want you to use chartreuse, magenta, and mauve. You’d really like to point out that these change requests are their own fault, but it’s hard to do that professionally.
The briefing process was also so messy that you’re not 100% sure they didn’t tell you.
