LOL it reminds me of these shows where they go to some person's house and redecorate .

I've seen an episode where basicallt the lady made so many changes to the proposed design that it ended up looking as bad as it was at first.

People who hire you and then don't listen to anything you say should simply never hire anyone.

I once worked on a project where one of the client's websites had a two-inch-thick design guide which contaned gems like "Avoid using red because the color could be associated with communism."

It gets better. The same design guide said positive messages, like telling the user something was saved, should be in green. Negative messages, however, had to be in a red-orange that was just the right shade to make people interpret it as red without actually being that color.

That design guide had some good points, too, like saying that users should be given a short description of an error instead of a numeric error code.

This strip reminded me of your post. The first panel especially so.
