Over at the endlessly entertaining Clients from Hell, graphic designers and other creative professionals recount some of their most memorable experiences with the people who pay (or sometimes refuse to pay) the bills. Several of the entries provide evidence of the full-fledged moral panics that are frequently chronicled on this here blog. F'rinstance:
Backstory: Illustrating an educational book on hygiene for an NGO in a developing country. Client: "We don't want that illustration of a father bathing his child. It implies incest."
Another designer writes:
We were building a website for a client that has a preschool and sells curricula. Just before we went live, they called up and asked us to remove the word 'school' from all the page titles and URLs. I asked why. They responded: "We heard if the gays find out we have a preschool, they can force us to teach the children to be gay. We think it's safest if nobody can see that we're a school. And we don't want to come up on any Google searches dealing with 'school.'"
