    Emailing design companies.

    Emails are a waste of effort. Doesn't matter how well designed they are. I get about 4 or 5 a day. They dont get opened. Not because im being horrible because i dont have time to read yet another email and look at another website/pdf. An email in itself in this day an age is a lazy option...

    An interesting exchange.

    Here is something i would imagine some people can relate to. A job from last year that went sour. Things were very heated by this point. The job started as a small redesign of an exisitng logo. The client had been quote £100 and paid a £40.00 deposit for a redesign of their current logo...

    Logo concepts for free?

    Brilliant link! I have a need for that every now and then. I always get a contract signd and 50% upfront. There was a case recently where a client didnt like the logo designs and she refused to pay. It was 2 days work. the little...'*7&!2%%! She was based in Russia unfortunately...

    Logo concepts for free?

    Exactly! Maybe when i was starting out 5 years ago i would have done it.., Infact i did. But now its a case of just being too busy to do it. If i had a massive client come along then yeah it would be worth it but otherwise no way! I think my reply was along the lines of 'jog on'...

    Logo concepts for free?

    Once or twice now i have had new clients approach me for logo design work and ask me to come up with concept s for free. It really winds me up. They have asked me to do some designs and then if they like them then they will pay for the work I am very busy as a designer and my working...
