Ridiculous demands made by advertising clients

Clients often come up with ridiculous demands, but none more than to those in advertising and marketing. Whether they don’t have a brief and expect wonders from you or they keep asking for the logo bigger, most people have encountered demanding clients.

Even though we don’t need reminders about ridiculous demands, Istanbul-based advertising and marketing creative Ali Erkurt has given them a parody of Apple’s Available on App Store badge. Partially about our dependency on technology and partially about ridiculous demands by unbelievable clients, Not On App Store is a sticker lets us know “the most important things in life are not on the app store”.

However, while you can’t blame your clients for not knowing that negative space is supposed to be empty, or that comic sans is an abomination, you can’t forgive them for assuming that your time is free. The series below features a collection of hilariously ridiculous demands by client in the advertising industry.

Clients: Not Available on the App Store

Ridiculous demands: "Deadline was yesterday" Ridiculous demands: "We want to do something that has never been done before. (Like this one)" Ridiculous demands: "We don't have a budget, lets try viral" Ridiculous demands: "Make the logo bigger. No, I mean bigger" Ridiculous demands: "Ok, we don't have a brief and we're expecting wonders from you guys ;)" Ridiculous demands: "Can you send 17 more different alternatives?"
