« 8 Reasons Why You're Not Making as Much as You Could as a Freelance Graphic Designer | Main | Essential Graphic Design Advice: What's the Problem if You Decide to Work with Every Client that Comes Your Way? »


I got that email today, too. I'm not a designer, but a copywriter, though I write about design a lot at my blog, so that may be where they got my contact info.

I do however know a developer who has work done through CrowdSpring with good results all around.

Thanks for the comment Rebecca, it's a shame that some companies out there don't understand that gobbling up quick sales by less than ethical means might end up backfiring in the long-run. This company might want to pick up Seth Godin's, "Permission Marketing" book if they find they're not getting good results.

Glad your friend's getting good results from CrowdSpring, for some folks this can be a nice supplemental alternative to what they're doing. But whether she/he is a developer or designer - I've always maintained that no one will ever get rich by doing spec work.
