I had recently done a Logo design and had given over as a first draft 6 logo design options with 7 items designed for the brand, for X amount of money ( what I charge a day ).
I am starting to think I should say 50% of payment is due after agreeing to the logo, the other 50% after full work is done.
I had worked long and hard on X brand for a whole day just to have 0 level payment and a walk away faster than Usain Bolt.
I did everything X stated in the brief “simple, logotype, very simple twist in font, clear and works on all mediums”.
I am finding that my design work is almost being seen as simple and easy and will take no time or money to do. I feel this is devaluing me as a designer.
What do you think? Please leave a comment I would love fee back.
