View Full Version : Be a good client/Asking for stuff for free

Saw this comic (http://theoatmeal.com/comics/design_hell) the other day and thought it was hilarious :lol: Haven't done graphic work for anyone, but I have done some music writing for clients and this is pretty funny because I've seen a little bit of what goes on in it (although I've never had anything this bad!) Guess the moral of the story is, know your designer, and trust him. If you don't... either find a new one or design your own lol.

Also, asking for designs, for free, is one of things where people say, "Well, can't hurt to ask, right?" Well... this is a DJ forum primarily, so... maybe it won't. And there are guys out there looking for opportunities to do work for experience. But just remember all those craigslist ads for people looking for a DJ to "plz work for free, but don wrry it'll get u reel good netwerking and expeerence". That's how designers that are good at their work (and are paid) feel when they constantly see 'wanted: for free' ads :tup:

As someone who dates a graphic designer, it's amazing how true this is. If anything that get screwed around more than dj's cos everyone thinks they can do it themselves or that it's jut a free hobby
