Should I be trendy?

    Yep nicely said.

    Also, you should be able to explain to the client why his preferred aesthetic is a bad decision for the project (if it is), and why something more "trendy" or modern is the better choice. If you can't articulate why, then your choice is just as unsubstantiated as the clients.

    If you are able to articulate and they still throw a fit, it's either dump the client, or do the work and make a sacrifice on the output (which sucks), but is definitely a reality in a client services industry.

    Good luck!
