In a last-ditch effort to at least get even if not get paid, freelancer Frank Jonen “impounded” the site of a client who he says isn’t paying him for 6 months of work.
So, for now, when you visit Fitness SF’s website, you get this page…
It’s an over-the-top rant, sure, but I bet it felt good and his point has been made loud and clear now. The truth of the matter remains in dispute however. AdAge reports that a manager of one of Fitness SF’s locations says that Jonen’s claims are unfounded.
Update: Fitness SF has responded…
Oh, man. As much as I want to side with the designer, the scenario as described by the client seems all too plausible… Who to believe, who to believe. The drama is almost too much.
