A few years back I made a website for a client that worked in security. Some weeks later, I got a call from a potential client via that site.
As it turned out, the potential client working in security too. He also had the same name as the client who I made the first website for.
Client: I found that site you made for [competitor client]. I really like it and would like you to make one like that for me too.
Me: That shouldn’t be a problem. Do you already have any Ideas what you need or want?
Client: No no, I want a site just like the one you made for [competitor client].
Me: Well, since you work in the same field, with the same name, we should at least make the design clearly different.
Client: No, I like the design. Make me one just like that. Just without the danger of confusion.
