A potential client reached out to me with this message:
Client: Yo Boss &/or Boss Lady, Looking for graphics pro to update/refine logo & brand identity for [REDACTED], a social group of 180+ professional women founded in 1970s. Logo must work on website (currently managed by another firm…we inherited), stationery, newsletter masthead redesign, lawn signs, etc. I have already developed the list of items to be impacted, including measurements & photos as available. It’s a small job ($500 budget) but I’m decisive and easy to work with. Would like to chat about possible relationship. Members are well-connected so who knows what could develop. Need concepts rather quickly and entire program presented to membership 1st week in March, imminently doable. Hope to hear from you at [REDACTED]. Stay safe.
“… well connected so who knows what could develop” huh? So very tempting.
I responded and let her let her know this scope of work was insufficient by a factor of eight.
