Venting: Just had a designer refuse to lowercase a word because they “felt strongly” that I was wrong about it. Even after I pulled examples from the client website of the correct usage, and got the 2cents of the copywriter who’s been on the account for 8 years. I had to tell them that they were being inappropriate and just make the change. Finally they did, and then shot me a note saying they’d find time on our calendars to talk about this tomorrow. Talk about what??? Who gets the final say?
