Mark Lewis has compiled a list of the Top 10 Lies told to naive artists and designers when dealing with clients. As a freelancer in the past, I’ve actually heard EVERY SINGLE ONE of these lies. As a young designer I was eager to please, ready to work for cheap to get the work and willing to believe these lines of “bull” that clients fed me. Don’t fall into the same trap. Despite the fact that you love what you do, and you want to “do great work” and build your portfolio, THIS IS A BUSINESS. Your chosen field allows you to express your creativity, but never forget that you do this to earn a living!
