Taken from the Clients From Hell website. Take a look over there if you want a chuckle or if you have an idea you want to run by your designer but you think the idea might be a little sketchy.
Can you show Joanne [client’s secretary] how you designed our busienss cards. I don’t want to pay you for doing them.
That’s one way to end your relationship with your designer. And if you have a lot of work that needs to be done, you’ve just cost yourself a lot more in time, headaches and potential lost revenue then if you had just paid for the work.
The moral of this story is that if you are looking to get something for free from your designer, ask yourself what you would think if one of your clients asked you to perform work for them without having to pay for it.
