A darker shade of red

My team was in the process of completing a website project for the client. During his final review of the site, I got a call from the customer:

Customer: The website looks great, but I really hate what shade of red you use.

The customer then gave a hint on what shade they were looking for, and after a few minutes we uploaded a different shade of red.

Customer: It’s still not quite what I want, can you go a little darker?

We made the switch and the client called back saying he loved it and the website was approved and ready to go.

Turns out my developer mistakenly uploaded the original stylesheet to the server – the shade of red the client liked and approved of was the same shade of red he hated on their first call.


A blast from the past of the Clients From Hell archives!
