Not too long ago I wrote an article on using CrowdSpring for a design project. Here are the arguments:
You get a lot of options both good and bad and It’s very cheap ($150-$500 for a logo)
Artists work for free hoping to win the project?to get paid and lack of real?strategy
As a client of CrowdSpring what are you concerned with? Nothing? As a designer why do you work for free? Give me your thoughts.
I stand firm on the subject. We get paid for our work. We never work for free. When asked to do spec work from any prospect I thank them for their time and nicely let them know we’re not a good fit. It’s not a relationship that is worth having if you have to work for free, in my opinion.
