top 10 lies told to naive artists and designers

the top 10 lies told to naive artists and designers:

1 "Do this one cheap (or free) and we'll make it up on the next one."

2 "We never pay a cent until we see the final product."

3 "Do this for us and you'll get great exposure! The jobs will just pour in!"

4 On looking at sketches or concepts: "Well, we aren't sure if we want to use you yet, but leave your material here so I can talk to my partner/investor/wife/clergy."

5 "Well, the job isn't CANCELLED, just delayed. Keep the account open and we'll continue in a month or two."

6 "Contract? We don't need no stinking contact! Aren't we friends?"

7 "Send me a bill after the work goes to press."

8 "The last guy did it for XXX dollars."

9 "Our budget is XXX dollars, firm."

10 "We are having financial problems. Give us the work, we'll make some money and we'll pay you. Simple."
