Please write back saying how much money you would like.
Trust me, this is the stuff of a designer's dreams.
Mick Jagger's letter to Andy Warhol asking him to create the cover for a Rolling Stones album is clearly the greatest brief from a client to a designer ever.
To be honest, the fact that it includes the phrases 'I leave it in your capable hands to do what ever you want' and 'please write back saying how much money you would like' means the whole thing is pretty much sewn up, but that it also recommends taking as long as is necessary is clearly the clincher.
