I've never ”ripped someone off”, not intentionally anyway! I HAVE been ripped off many times however! People don't seem to place value on the services I provide, typically. Though the work I do is integral to their businesses, like developing logos, creating signs, producing print goods like brochures and business cards, banners and signs. Even large corporate entities will skimp on services, or just refuse to pay outright, not seeing the level of professionalism and pride I bring to my work. I believe in going above-and-beyond, where many designers follow the professional photography model, and claim copyright over works like logos, I assign all rights to the paying customer, and deliver an archive of all work done under contract. I like to think this makes me a better designer and businessman than others. I intend to continue in this way as I develop a new incarnation of my business today.
