My client had been dodging the budget question, so I suggested we work on the brief before I gave an estimate.
Me: So how would you like the site to look?
Client: I don’t exactly know yet.
Me: What colors do you want me to use?
Client: Red, blue and yellow.
Me: Is there anything else you could tell me? Anything to help me make you a that you will like.
Client: Just make the whole site, and I’ll say if I like it or not.
Me: I can’t make a whole site based off of three colours on the off-chance you’ll like it.
Client: Just do what I’ve told you, then we can discuss how much your payment should be.
