Designers Unite

May 29th, 2008

Here are two industry sites that are dedicated to subjects I strongly support.

Stop Work For Hire
– Don’t give away your work. If a company wants you to sign a WFH aggreement, there is a reason and they are trying to take advantage of you.
If you do sign one, increase your price to include all uses for the design.

No Spec
– More and more clients are asking for a sample job. This is considered Speculative work and is killing our industry. I know several companies that have closed or almost closed because they spent a ton of time and money trying to get jobs doing spec work. This destroys your profit margins, compromises the design work and hurts the industry.
