A truly fantastic representation of how us freelancers feel when a client tries to take the cheap way out. It’s undermining to the individual and to the web industry. This video depicts various scenarios that all send the same message to each and every industry out there. Whether one runs a freelance business, an upscale dining venue or a music store, no one should have to expect to pay or earn less than the true value of a product or service.

Well, we’ve made a decision. We’re getting married in fall of 2010, rather than 2009. Being a web designer, of course I’ve already thought up a wedding website idea! I created a layout and color scheme that encompasses fall colors. What are your thoughts of the proposed website idea? What kind of navigation links do you think are most important on a wedding website? Comments are welcome!

Client: “Can you design this for me, please?”
Me: “Sure, I accept payment via PayPal based on milestone completion.”
Client: “Actually, I’m not sure what kind of design I want. I was hoping you could just come up with a new look and feel for my website. I have a few others doing the same, then I’ll pick the best and we’ll go from there.”
Me: “Uhm. No. I do not endorse spec work.”
What’s spec work? “Basically, its any kind of creative work rendered and submitted, either partial or completed, by a designer to a prospective client/employer before taking steps to secure both their work and an equitable fee.” –NO!SPEC Campaign
