    Good man, I actually e-mailed them telling them that we had loads of UK based designers crying out for work and maybe pointing start-ups to the Tenders & Services section of our Forum would be a good idea, instead of Welcome | DBA - design business association which is a database of large design agencies who probably charge a fortune!!

    Still waiting for them to get back to me. I wonder how many other people they've asked? Maybe they'll want us all to take pictures then they'll use the best?

    Ha Ha, makes you laugh though, they are supposed to be helping start-ups and yet it seems they expect a small new-ish business like yourself to work for free, can see why they decided to promote 99 designs now!

    I think the best part is that you're not even a photographer!

    Yeah, but I could buy a camera and call myself one. Nobody would know the difference :p
