Even if you don't do art but design, surely you have something
(anything at all?) to show for it. It's called a portfolio
or CV, whichever you prefer. It is where you tell about and/or
show stuff you did so that people know what you're capable of,
or at least so that they know what your added value is.

When you are asked for examples of previous work, you can start
quarreling and implying that people are ignorant before you've
even started on the job. But I imagine the people you're arguing
with aren't going to be overly thrilled about the prospect of
working with you.

If, on top of that, they have no idea what quality of work
they'll be able to expect from you, don't be surprised if they
don't want you for this job.
