comment The Creative Process for creating slight juxtapositions
If your icons are too similar, you have to go farther afield to make them not similar. A snowflake is pretty obvious for snow; maybe an ice cube for ice. Or something which looks like a sheet of ice/pane of glass. Make your "slight" differences more significant.

Can't LaTeX import EPSes? If you want a vector image, why would you export as PDF?

@hattenn Fortunately no to both parts of that question. You may want to ask in chat and see if that situation has occurred to anyone else.

By "blueprint" do you mean "wireframe"? Draw boxes and lines. What trouble are you having?

comment Should I ask for client's budget before the initial first meeting?
@DA01 I don't think you're making it clear in your answer that the cost of your solution and the budget are both adjustable. You're presenting it as "Here's the cost. There's the budget. If they don't match, it's game over." If there's room to address either side, you should edit your answer to reflect that. If the two sides can't compromise, then yes, you should pass on the job.

comment Should I ask for client's budget before the initial first meeting?
"If your solution costs more than the budget," then there may be a mismatch between solution and client. Just because the client has a budget of $50 for a logo doesn't mean I can provide a logo for $50. (or, I can, but it won't be anywhere as good as the $500 logo.) So either the client has to adjust budget, or the solution has to be different. Neither of those is "failure."
