Should I Work for Free?
No designer, not even the worst, should ever work for free. I too am guilty of being stupid enough to fall into the trap of ‘It’s good for your portfolio/exposure’, ‘It’s for non-profit/start-ups’.
These kind of jobs really leave a bad aftertaste, not unlike after having wolfed down a Double Guacamole Bacon Cheeseburger meal within second flat.
If you can’t afford to pay, then do it yourself. There’s really nice wordpress templates out there. On Flickr, you can crop and adjust your photos. If that’s way too advanced, you can even use Instagram to edit your photos, surely you know how to use instagram, don’t you?
