awful client feedback In the spirit of Clients from Hell, several Irish creative companies joined forces on a series called “Sharp Suits”… Ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters.
