This may be too subtle. Would I continue to work on a design well after my clients ran out of money? Of course not. Maybe I'll just try one more concept.
Architecture is also available in expensive.
Wait. I may have gotten that backward. No, actually it works either way.
I'll let you in on a secret: It's taking longer than I thought as well. I should bill for additional services.
This is also my architectural marital status on my new company Facebook page. I have three followers so far. Winning.
Actually, I like this one.
Note: Architectural egos may appear larger than they actually are. Quite a bit larger.
