Difficult clients – who needs them? Well, probably you. As a freelance designer you need every client you can get. Difficult clients are easy to spot. They email or call relentlessly, the project specs seem to be a moving target, they want you to Photoshop the sweat off their brow from their headshot, or argue that their logo just isn’t red enough. But unless you can afford to turn business down, monster clients are just part of doing business. You can’t control how someone else acts, but you can take certain actions to prevent abuse.
