Winning Design To Lose

I love the Airbag blog and buy into most of what Greg Storey has to say. He’s a wonderful designer and commentator and he gets tremendous amounts of traffic, as can be witnessed by the 163 comments about his “contest” to design a logo for his buddy. Greg isn’t the first one to ask designers to submit their work (called “on spec” because there is no pay) for credibility and a gadget (he’s giving away a $99.00 iPod Shuffle). But I find it rather grotesque that even beginning designers would want to help a business design a logo for some shilling and a t-shirt. It’s my humble opinion that if a business wants to do business, they should do business with other businesses and not look for handouts. Anyway, the comments in this post do better justice to the injustice than I.
