I recently sent off a proposed design to a client and talked him through it to justify why I put things in certain places as to avoid them making unneccessary little changes. He loved the design, it seemed to be exactly what he wanted.
However, he then threw in a "let me show it to my mates first to see what they think".
I knew this was going to hurt me so I tried to stop him by saying things such as "keep in mind, everyone has different ideas of design so something you like wont neccessarily be something they like". I couldnt stop him.
I designed the website for him, not his friends and I have a feeling that they will want to make changes.
Is there any way to stop this? could I, and do you put a clause in your contract saying that the client is the only one that can approve it/view it? or should I just suck it up and deal with it?
