    DC1- great post! I've been selling for years and like to feel that I can read people. The guy in my example, I honestly believe, hadn't really thought through what I go through to get him a finished drawing, OR that a day doing that for him was a day not doing billable work. I explained my processes and my expectations, and that got him at least invested enough to send me an email reiterating our conversation and giving me his contact info. So, we'll see where it goes. In the meantime, can I call what you suggest "sales judo?"

        Apologies for taking this much of the OP's thread and I get what you guys are saying.

        But data visualization is about the flow of data from there to there.

        I can see why she likes the scratchboard look of the blocks -- it is a nice look. As an illustrative technique, it's great. As a logo, though, it'll create potential problems for her.
