The designer you treat like shit . . .

There’s a hilarious email exchange doing the rounds between a graphic designer and a client who wants hin to work for free [hat tip CJ Lambert]. Read it here: "Please design a logo for me. With pie charts. For free."

I’d like to think it was all true.


  1. This is better:

  2. speaking of which, when are you going to design my house - its only a few rooms, - and you do it on the computer! - I need it this afternoon to give to the . . .


    You have to be a designer to know that this is not a joke - and it is not an unusual occurrence.

    Not a week goes by without a request of this type.

    I think I may start answering such requests with pie charts
