Client: I am looking for a logo and some business cards for my pig farm, and some business cards.
We chat on the phone for about half an hour, and I run through my questionnaire with her everything seems fine until we start talking about her business cards.
Me: Do you have anything in mind for how you want these to look?
Client: Yes, I actually have a vision for these.
Me: Great, tell me more about what you are thinking.
Client: I’d like the card to be in the shape of a pig, open up and have the cuts of meat on the inside, as well as my information.
Me: That’s a great idea! I can definitely design that, but just so you know printing something like that will be a bit expensive.
Client: Well if it is too expensive I will just cut them out myself!
Me: Oh, you don’t want to do that. It will take forever and it won’t look professional.
Client: Oh, I don’t mind doing the work.
Me: …Well, I would really advise you let the professionals handle it.
Client: I’ll be customizing the cards anyway. I was also thinking of glueing some pig hair onto the front of the card as well.
Me: …Okay! Well, let’s just get started on your logo and we can talk about the business cards when we get there.
We’ll see how this goes, but I’m telling my family that if I go missing in the next month to search the pig farm.
