We’ll do a book on spec. Run a contest “on Spec”

Man. That’s a lot of work. Wait! What is it that advertisers do to graphics designers? Ah yes – “Spec” We’ll do a book on spec. Run a contest “on Spec” and the winner gets published… on Amazon and gets paid a small percentage… and has to handle all the marketing.

 

lol it’s ok. It’s something I was reading about recently. Advertising companies are always looking for graphics designers, but there’s more graphics designers than jobs.

So they run contests. “Give us your best and winner take all”.

So, they work for free and the company running the contest keeps all of the entries to do what they want with them.

It’s one of those “unfair” professions.
