I’m frustrated and just want to rant. Someone reaches out to me about my Sports Logo gigs and they want 3 cricket logos and 3 jerseys. I think “Hey! This guy is giving me a lot of work, might as well give them a deal.” I essentially gave him half priced for it. The ideas he described for the jersey wasn’t in my skill set and I let him know. He says it’s fine and just do something simple.
I work and work and work on it. Deliver it to him how he wanted the logos (and deliver some stuff I’m super proud of), he requests a change. This happens multiple times with me essentially creating all new logos for him each time. After the logos are “done” he asks for changes for the jerseys. Easy enough…NOPE! He wants everything like what I told him I couldn’t do. We go back and forth and I learn that everything I make will be out of my comfort level, will not look good, and won’t ever satisfy my customer. I spent 20+ hours on a $40 job. I work a full time job from home and I’m married. I wore myself out for this job because we needed the money.
Today, he decides to cancel and use another designer that might be able to give him what he wants. I’ve never felt so devalued before in my life. I poured A LOT out for this job and he cancelled.
Just want to rant…this is the fiverr life at times.
