I agree... to all of you so called employers, don't use the economy as an excuse to belittle our work. Please not that graphic design is considered the most mentally intensive work field besides that of the doctorate field because of our need to understand a certain psychology in order to deliver effective ideas. We bring forth years of training, experience, and techniques that are both invaluable and utilize knowledge of culture, emotion, and application.

If you want to barter for service... start your own country, and trade a horse, for a few gallons of milk and egg laying hens...

We pay bills, just as you do.

PS, a Designer is a Designer because of his or her ability to ADJUST to your project and develop an array of styles. Because you don't see specific work, doesn't mean we can't do it. Just because your Doctor doesn't carry around your medicine, doesn't mean he or she can't fill your prescription.

Graphics Designers, Web Designers, Photoshop experts, Motion Graphic Designers, and everyone else do not want credit in your worthless film, and we don't care about your precious experience. We want money, just like everyone else.

Creative jobs isn't just a fancy term for freebies. We are providing a service that no one else can provide. It's called 'creative' for a reason. Sure you could hire some random guy to whip up a flier for you, but we are specially trained to know what sells. We know how customers and consumers react to design. We study it for years and know that a good flier or website could be the difference between keeping your company in business or not.

Just because you don't think it takes a lot of skill or talent to design something doesn't mean that we aren't using years and years of experience and skill to put together something looks professional. So please stop insulting us with your promises of "possible paid work in the future" and "credit on our short film". It just doesn't cut it.
