It reminded me of one of my earliest design projects where I had to create a logo for a landscape gardening company. Despite the ideas I presented, the client was adamant about using a solitary, hanging snowdrop in the design.

Now, snowdrops in the wild can be pretty special, but a lonely one looks glum, fearful, “like an unbidden guest” as Wordsworth wrote.

It was an early lesson for a few projects that followed since — you can put everything into persuading clients against their own ideas, but sometimes everything isn’t enough.
