    Let's see what design magic you worked on this gem!
    :)
    I think wife art is even worse than nephew art because the client really has no choice unless he wants to sleep alone and go without dinner every night for the rest of his life.
    Love....Jill

    Many times I have worked on a layout for a male client and have had him love what I did.
    THEN he shows his wife and all hell breaks loose.
    Wives like burgundy and hunter green, gold text, Papyrus, and anything that Martha Stewart likes.
    And 99½% of the time he will go with the wife's ideas.
    "Yes Dear!"

    I have had to throw couples out of my office for argueing over a design!!!!
    I made a wonderful logo for a company but when the wife saw it "it wasn't fenshui"!!!!
    Fenshui "get a grip" the redsigned ticked all her boxes and looked awful.

    Hah, heyskull - I haven't thrown anyone out, but I did have a couple in my shop about 2 months ago arguing over the sizes of signs etc., asking my opinion. I chatted witht hem for about 30 minutes or more discussing different signage options, etc. etc.

    2 weeks later, went by where their location was going to be..signs everywhere.
