Cat Morley (Designers Who Blog) has set up a site called No!Spec, about the difﬁculties graphic designers have when a potential client requests work to be done for nothing. It’s something I have been against for years, especially when AGDA campaigned against it with its members.
The idea is that the designer gets zilch in order to “pitch” for a job. Hours are invested, and ideas, more often than you think, are appropriated. It devalues the work of all designers. I’ve added one graphical link in the sidebar, but you can surf as readily to her site from here to see how you can help. Posted by Jack Yan, 01:21

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
