One of my recent projects was with a client from Guinea-Bissau...
As an ex Portuguese colony, the main language of Guinea-Bissau is Portuguese...
My client is one of those immigrants who initiated some services to help his community...
I had the pleasure to meet him & do his logo with a simple website to introduce his services to the people of Guinea-Bissau in Portugal & eventually to the people of Guinea-Bissau as well.
Of course I didn't forget to include some of DT images for the special touch on the website :)
I am trying to learn from my experience with my clients, as much as I can, but even so, surprises happen & will continue to happen!
But with some preparations we can make the negative impact less harmful, or we can make our reaction more flexible & faster!
Here are some tips that I would like to share with you:
1- Try to know what do your client prefer as colors materials!
If your client is the kind of mixing between his likes & business, ask him/her about his favorite colors, football team color or even his zodiac, to know what might make impact on him & get your proposal accepted in the first hand.
Ask if he/she can show you something similar to what he would like to have or what he/she thinks is nice.
I have noticed that many of us don't know the concept of Easter icons!
For my curiosity, I have tried to find answers to:
What was the origin of the Rabbit & the Egg symbols in the Easter?!
I have asked some religious people about that, but no clear answers!
Then my second source was wikipedia but I got only half answer!!!
The rabbit as Easter symbol has came from Germany (Read More) and what I understood is simply that it represents the children that were collecting the eggs, that were hidden in the garden, so they looked like rabbits jumping and catching them and making the nests of colored eggs :)
The second icon is the Egg. Even in wikipedia they...
I can't answer for the bunnies but the egg is pretty straightforward. The faithful had to abstain from eggs during lent (as well as meat). The tradition of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday stems from using up all the eggs before Lent. Easter Sunday they could be eaten again.

I just thought of notifying the photographer of this image that it's used in this site.
You know that projects at the early beginning are never finished 100% until the client set up his/her mind about the contents... So some changes had to take place on this project (that was mentioned in my previous blog) and here it is with the new layout with this image on the first page!
