Quite often, freelancers designers (and freelancers of any kind) are posed with a dilemma. A ‘client’ comes to you with a project but, for whatever reason, they say there won’t be any compensation (are they really a client if you’re not getting paid?) but they’ve promised you all sorts of other benefits or (even stickier) you have some personal relationship with them.
Now you’ve got a decision to make.
Designer Jessica Hische put together a handy-dandy guide for that sticky situation and the best part is: it’s guilt-free. It’s out of your hands. So, now, when you turn people down and they get all pouty-faced and puppy-eyed you can simply point to the graphic and explain, “Sorry but the chart says I can’t help you.”
So, just head to shouldiworkforfree.com and you’ll always know what to do.
Holy flying crap-monkeys! This whole infographic is CSS and HTML, and can be translated by Google Translate (which is nested on the page). Jessica Hische, you are a showoff. I hate you — with great respect — but I hate you. Okay, I don’t hate you. Well … a little bit.
For sure, I hate you a lot less than THIS.
