Hi, I’m back, this time with a new problem
Is there any way to NOT display an order in my portfolio?
Here’s the deal: I’m about to finish a gig for a client. Just to be clear, I followed her brief to the letter and she is overjoyed with the result, so there’s no issue there. The issue is that I really hate that particular design and I don’t want people to see it. I don’t know how to describe it, it’s like Illustrator had diarrhea all over my screen. It’s really, really ugly, and I don’t want someone to see it and think “wow this guy’s work sucks. Pass!”
So here’s my dilemna: on one hand, I have a happy client and that’s what’s it’s all about right, so I should be happy. But on the other hand, I don’t think her logo is on par with my usual work and I’m not comfortable putting my name on that. I did share my concerns with her, and tried to stir her toward a design that is more elegant but she’s having none of it.
I guess my question is: do you guys ever create designs you’re not proud of, and if so, how do you deal with having them in your portfolio for the world to see?
