Should you freelance for free? A flowchart.

I stumbled on a fun blog entry from designtaxi that featured this great flowchart graphic designed by Jessica Hische. It’s totally hilarious and somewhat accurate I think.

For some reason many people think that what we do as artists and designers we do merely for ‘fun’. While anything creative is fun to do, making money with our art is how we pay our bills.

So next time you want to ask a freelance designer to do a logo for you for free, or someone asks you for free work take a look at Jessica’s flowchart to decide whether to say yes or no.
