I was emailing back and forth with a potential client who needed “packaging designs” for their new line of ice cream; 3 different flavors. I tried to get a better understanding of the scope of their project:

Client: I need 3 ice cream package designs, my budget is $X.

Me: Do you just need graphics or do you also need me to consider the container size, shape, materials, production, etc? Do you have a logo? If not perhaps I can do that as well.

Client: Yes, the logo will need to be on the packaging. Packaging design inherently involves the consideration of size, shape, etc. Come on, that should be obvious.

Me: I know what packaging design is. Sorry for any confusion. I was wondering if you already had a container chosen or if you need me to design that for you in addition to label designs.

Client: I’ve already chosen a container.

Me: Okay, great. Then when you’re ready to move forward with the project, I’ll need you to send me all of the info that needs to be on the labels, and a working file of your company logo.

Client: I don’t have a logo. How much would you charge for one and how long would it take?

Me: (I asked if you had a logo about 2 emails ago but…) I’ll charge you an additional $X (amount of original budget) just for the logo design. Do you have an additional budget for a logo design?

I never heard back from them again.
