A bit of context first,
We (Software company) made a mobile app for a client, but the client didn't have the budget to make a homepage for it to promote the app
Our employer said we're free to make one for him if it's in our own time, so I made one, because I like web development so it was fun to make, especially since I was free to make it however I saw fit, and also the app was for a good cause (2 birds 1 stone)
I was proud of the page I made so I added to the bottom of the page in small text
"Made with ❤ by [my name]"
So I can add it to my portfolio
When my employer saw the page his first reaction was:
"I didn't ask for this, did you do it in your own time?"
When told that it wasn't on the company's time he asked to remove the caption I added at the end.
Now, I'm thinking of saying it's an all in one take it or leave it, because I did it for free at least let me take credit for it.
But I want to hear other opinions, am I just being selfish?
PS: forgot to mention that the employer didn't ask to simply remove it, He asked to either put the company's name or remove it
