Since I’m paying for this magazine, I don’t want any wasted space. Please get rid of those margins and take the text all the way to the edges of the page. You can use my vacation pictures to fill any extra space.
Do you have a little extra time so we can go through about 50 designs we found that we like? We just figured it was easier for you to take the best pieces from all of them and put them together.
We need a quotation about our next project - but it is still top secret so I can’t tell you anything.

Client: But on elance, they were able to do it for $150-$200
Me: They have basic layout skills.

Me: “Here is my proposal and budget for the video production, which you requested.”
Client: “Hmm, X dollars seems kind of high.”
Me: “This is how I arrived at that total: X, Y, and Z. This is based in large part upon the previous video we did.”
Client: “I don’t know. Still seems high. I mean, I have Photoshop.”
“I’m not sure what I want, but I’ll know it when I see it.”
We’d like you to illustrate this (diagram of traffic tunnel and four-lane highway), but we’d like you to make it look like this (watercolour of budgie doing aerobics).
Can you make the font more dangerous?
