There is a reason why people shouldn't do things for free.
You get jerked around is what happens.
I'm not angry about this, I'm just stating a fact, that in case anyone has a crazy notion of doing anything creative for free, just be sure you know you are going to get screwed.
It all started when I was contacted by a woman who saw my work at the coffeehouse and asked if I could donate a piece to her fundraiser.
Sure. Oh and by the way do you need any design done for invitations and posters?
Oh yes thank you she said.
Well the work was done, and changes after changes were made, and well basically
it doesn't even look like something I would do. Who knows what it's going to look like because the woman hasn't spoken to me since she went to the printers.
Very childish indeed.
I tried doing something like this before and of course it didn't work out.
Why can't people trust creatives to make something look great? Just take that leap of faith, knowing that all will be well. TRUST ME-I know what I'm doing. I have really good ideas.
There is a song I just heard about trying to be a rebel, and trying to be cool, but it's hard when everyone is doing it. Why does everyone think they have a right to say what is a good design or not?
This is a HUGE problem in the design world because everyone and their brother thinks they are qualified. Computers have fooled the masses.
Design has to be taken back. Or maybe it needs to be taken underground and we'll go from there.
