My Brief Beef
It’s been said time and time again in the design industry that Spec Work should be illegal. What is Spec Work? Offering your services/designs/creative abilities for free with little or nothing in return. Back when I was in college — years ago — I was told never to do work for free, never take out the trash before your paid, always work diligently with a contract and make sure there is mutual respect between the client and the designer.
