I get a number of logo requests asking me to work for free each week. Some are just a few words, maybe the odd sentence. Some however are a little more detailed, such as the above. The person concerned does know of my disdain…
Getting a letter like this is not particularly pleasant. It’s funny on one hand, more that it’s just unbelievable If you plan to send a letter such as these examples to a logo designer, consider what you are really asking and how you regard skilled and talented professionals.
Frankly it’s offensive and rude.
A previous example : How not to approach me for logo design work
If you are looking to hire a consummate and professional logo designer, then might I overtly suggest you give some thought to hiring me? With over 24 years experience, and a pretty nifty logo design portfolio, I can assure you I am darn capable, and a sure safe bet as far logo designers come."
