Content mistakes

Content mistakes are one of the most serious mistakes you can make on a project. No client will forgive missing or changed information in the file, even if they have received the best design in the world. Incorrect content jeopardizes their job and our contact with them – so you must always make sure that the content in your project slides in impeccable. Admins usually only have time to do in detail content checking after a project has been approved, so you need to be 100% sure that everything is correct before you send your final file.
