I'm designing a character for a simple flash game for kids. The clients keep rejecting designs, saying that the character isn't 'cool' enough. I politely explain that 'cool' is a subjective term and ask for more guidance. They clearly have a strong idea but are completely incapable of communicating it. I eventually end up sending them a short questionnaire to try to extract their ideas for the character. Questionnaire goes like this:

What kind of personality does he have?
What kind of clothes does he wear?
Does he belong to any subcultures (skater, goth, etc)?
What kind of haircut does he have?
etc

Their answers:
What kind of personality does he have? He is cool
What kind of clothes does he wear? Cool clothes
Does he belong to any subcultures (skater, goth, etc)? He's a cool kid
What kind of haircut does he have? He has cool hair


How uncool.
