This can occur when graph- ics are too extreme, there's too much text or a color scheme limits the legibility of a slogan or name. There's also a fine line between client requests and our recom- mendations. Often times, customers want to put everything and the kitchen sink into a design, but we try and preach that less is more. That's where color change films are beginning to make a real impact.
