I was working on a set of projects for a client who works with a nonprofit organization that is known for exploiting artists. The form of exploitation involves guilt-tripping them to work for free. The client signed the contract and agreed to pricing, so I didn’t anticipate there would be any issues. The client was pleased with the designs. Then, right before finalizing them, this happened.
Client: I forgot to tell you, but you were supposed to use our logo for this project.
Me: Okay, that’s no problem. Go ahead and send that over so I can plug it in.
Turns out that the placement they wanted for the logo required a redesign from scratch. I also found out that they used drafts for print before the project was finalized.
