We appreciate clients and projects that want to engage in a real collaborative exchange with us, rather than looking for someone who can make their ideas look nice.
I can really understand, but given my schedule it might be quicker and more convenient to do this over the phone or email.
I know this project is a high priority for you, and if it’s absolutely necessary for me to turn something in by that date, I can make it happen. But if I could have a few more (days, weeks, etc.), I could really deliver something of higher quality. Would it be possible for me to have a bit more time?
