The best email confirmation

How often do you receive a confirmation email and get to read all of it?

i usually read the upper block and scroll fast to the bottom to see if there are any other important information i need to know whether im ordering from amazon, ebay or just an opt-in newsletter confirmation...

This one was a bit different, moo.com is a card designing/printing website, the user journey; throughout selecting the type of cards and designing them was a lot of fun, and easy to use.

The fun part began when i received my order's email confirmation ... It made me read the whole email with a big smile on my face!
That's what i call a user experience joyness :

5 things clients say and what they really mean

I came across this well written ( and true VERY true ) article published by Brian Yerkes, he basically quotes:

"Working with all types of clients on a daily basis can be as challenging as the actual design or development work that they are hiring you for. As a freelancer or a project manager, you are on the front-line and even though there shouldn’t be war between you and your client, it can sometimes feel like a battle!

Over the years, I have heard clients say a lot of things, and some of them are more clear in their message than others. For those starting out in the design industry, whether it is at a firm, or as a freelancer, this list of “5 things clients say and what they really mean” will surely help you to be educated when interacting with various types of clients"

type #1: i designed it myself and just need you to ....

99.9% of the time, if a client says this to you when they first inquire about your services, and ask you for a quote, they are really saying, “I know enough to have an opinion on YOUR profession, and I understand what it takes to do what you do. I don’t really think your skills are anything that hard to do, I just don’t have the time to do it, or I don’t have the little amount of time it probably takes to learn it. Knowing all this, I won’t be paying you that much to do this work as it shouldn’t take you that long at all…plus I’ve already done most of the work for you.”
