I have a lot of friends who freelance in one form or another, whether it’s designing posters, taking pictures, writing articles, and so on. It’s an extremely hectic world to put it nicely.
And to put it meanly, it can be a total fucking nightmare on too many different levels to count.
Enter Serious Studio, a Philippines based design firm that wanted to have a little fun with the horror stories of the job. They collected real freelance stories and made posters based on old school horror movies while incorporating the stories.
Why did they do it? Well, I’ll let Serious Studio explain. From Bored Panda:
“We wanted to do something fun for Halloween, and what’s scarier than a client from hell? … We think that it got such a positive reaction because our collection of horror stories was so true to life. These are stories that every creative, whether you’re a freelancer or a designer at a big agency, can relate to.”
That’s a good enough excuse for me. So enjoy these posters, and the stories as well.
“It’s 4pm and I’m about to wrap things up and call it a day when all of a sudden, a client calls, demanding a turnover for a new concept by the end of the day. Sometimes, at night, I can still hear the shrill echo of a voice taunting me to make that deadline…”

“A few days ago, my client wanted me to just copy his competitor’s logo to save time and back-and-forths. He was persistent that I should just copy it because ‘it just works’. I wanted to tell him that if he’s just going to literally copy a restaurant, he should just forget about starting one. I didn’t tell him because I’m just sitting here eating my popcorn, waiting for this trainwreck that is just about to happen.”

“My small agency just finished a project that went on for months. By the time we started to talk about billing, my client told me to talk to their accounting department. The sad part is they really don’t have an accounting department— I was actually talking to their intern, who was a really bad liar. He ended up just saying that his boss suddenly can’t pay our agency.”

“My client told me that I shouldn’t get paid for this because they’re just a startup. The best they can do is pay me in exposure, and get me when they’re way bigger. After all, he said, it’s called freelancing for a reason. Also, who lives on exposure anyway?”
