Ad agencies have had to deal with a lot of interesting clients and the Sharp Suits project focuses on some of the more infuriating feedback ever encountered. A "creative catharsis" of sorts, as stated on the Sharp Suits website, it translates the most outrageous requests and comments into a collection of well-designed posters that are available for purchase online. The proceeds of which go to Temple Street Children’s Hospital of Dublin.

Put together by Mark & Paddy, a Dublin-based creative agency, the Sharp Suits project is similar to the Clients From Hell blog, which publishes designers' horror stories. Partner Mark Shanley says, "We had been stockpiling these crazy (actual) quotes for a while. We had to turn them into something or they would have driven us crazy, and crazy is frowned upon in Irish advertising." Stats for Creative Catharsis Posters Trending: Older & Average
