One of the thrills of being a creative is seeing your ideas come to fruition. All that hard work would finally pay off when you present your ideas to your clients they’ll fall in love with the project, and put you on a retainer. The creative genius in you is super proud .
So you’re almost giddy with the satisfaction you’d receive from your client, although you keep your cool. You send your work in, awaiting compliments like a child about their first candy.
But instead of praise for delivering such top-notch work, you receive a series of noes and a list of complaints and things to change. It can be deflating.
However, we learn to move on from it so we can give the story of how it happened. We met 5 such creatives on this week’s Creative Gist to ask, “What happened the last time a client denied the height of your creative genius?”
Product and Business Development
Architect and Illustrator
Social Worker, Content creator, Songwriter
Artist and Graphic Designer
Creatives are a resilient bunch. Every creative showcased here did not once say that they gave up due to the feedback or were afraid of any negativity.
It’s fact, none of our creatives showcased on Creative Gist have done that so far.
Our creatives have shared their thoughts. Now we ask you: What happened the last time a client denied the height of your creative genius?
