I really need some help with my situation in this startup that I am working for a year.
I am having a really frustrating problem with company that I am working with almost a year. (remote) And dont really know how to behave and approach right now.
A year ago I started to work with them, started from scratch and founder of the company kept changing the product, adding more features, removing features, adding those again..
He decided to change the navigation like 10 times, top to bottom, side bar to dropdown.. everything he saw in other apps, he was coming to me every week " look I found this app, I really like it, lets do it like this"
And I was trying to explain that is not right to do, but maybe because my my english skill or the way I was explaning he didnt really take me seriously, sometimes, he listened my advice but then he chanced his mind again.
Months later I stopped fighting with him, I decided to do what he says, just get paid and design the app the way he wanted. I gave up on the design, and from things I know.
But then things get even more horrible, PSD files started to have horrible organization, layer names, groups .. Because of changing everything for a 100 times..
Anyway, lately I visited their office and spend there a month because they are planing to launch the app and just saw the built they submitted to appstore: it even looks more horrible than even in PSD files. It developed so poorly, font sizes, margins, spacing, colors.. nothing is matching.
I tried to show the differences between design and developed version, they didnt really care. and still making do chances on PSD, like lets move that button, lets do this lets make it green.. lets make it pop.
Right now, app looks like nothing that something I would design. Something I would put on portfolio.
And When I tried to explain this to "boss" he was freaked out and telling me things like "this is my vision" "I am a visual person" "I know about design"
App looks really bad, and I am so embarrassed to be known as designed that. which has nothing to do with me.
I need some advice, how to deal with this kind of clients, how to change their mind, or how to approach with sounding professional.
Sorry for my grammar mistakes, I am still learning English. :)
Thank you all.
P.S - I already quit
