Say no to Crowd Sourcing!
Say no to Crowd Sourcing!
I like to share an old article that I found on doc4design.com Sherry Pappas explains crowd sourcing in graphic design industry. To read the full article click the link below.


I actually came across numerous websites that offer graphic designers to join into several contests to create logos, letterhead design, full websites, etc. and as I recall, the winner will get cash prize of small hundred of dollars to $800.

I immediately frown upon this type of contest because making a website or a simple logo is not a contest! It is a job and there are many steps, time, and thinking to come up a logo that will last for years to come.

Many graphic designers never get paid for joining contests like this one. And many businesses don't live up to their expectations. So to everyone, you get what you pay for!

Agree completely! Our society does not value the arts enough and we are the only ones who can set it straight!

Another issue is that we have to straighten the rules we have and get our message across so people won't take advantage of our good nature.
