I was supposed to post this last month but have been busy trying to earn some cash. Some of you might know that I occasionally do the odd freelance job in Design, since I have bills to pay and I did study Design at University. There is however, always the odd one who thinks that I should dish out this work for free because they might know a friend’s cousin, who knows their mate, and went to the gym once with the sister of the mother who owned the dog down the street! Here was one such person.
Now, I don’t actually mind people asking for a favour, but at least have the courtesy to find out what I would have charged should he have wanted to pay something towards me. So this was my response.
I was hoping the message would get across to the person, apparently it didn’t.
Well, when they put it like that, how could I possibly refuse. Although, I’m not sure I could afford to support the whole event! So now I’m working in a little sweat shop designing logos and chained to a kitchen sink.
