A friend of mine, who
knows I’m new to freelancing after 20+ years of designing, mainly for print and
branding, forwarded me this email.
Client: I am
looking for a logo design, colour palette and help with the overall look and
feel of the company for our business stationery and web pages. We have decided
to go out to tender to a few people … and are offering £500 payable if your
contribution is chosen.
So I do pretty much a
full branding job for a startup, and they’ll only pay me a couple of day’s
pay if they choose my
work from a number of people? I declined, very politely. The worst bit is my
friend probably thought she was doing me a favour.
