First of all, Karen, yay for Librans/Libras! :-)

While I rankled a bit at Leela’s posts at first, I definitely have to agree with a few of the hard, cruel facts of life.

  1. Life isn’t fair.
  2. You do get what you pay for.
  3. Some people won’t EVER get that there’s a difference between whacking a few elements together and design.

That’s just life in the big city.

The important thing is to value the clients you have (the good old 80/20 rule) and seek more of the clients YOU want: the ones that value good design and are looking for creative partners, not ‘Photoshop monkeys’ (someone else posted that phrase in another FS forum and I love it!)

Since we all have a limited amount of time and energy, I prefer to use mine to create great designs, not chase people who are going to drive me nuts anyway.
