Publisher and front page are rubbish. Something clients don’t realise.
Clip art is cheap, unoriginal and doesn’t solve the problem effectively.
I understand the money issue. Although at times I wish people/clients would try to see design as an investment in their biz, rather than just a cost. But that’s a separate discussion.

Having the tools doesn’t make anyone a designer. If I want to do some carpentry, I can go to Bunnings and buy all the tools I want. But that doesn’t make me a carpenter.

Dan, I’m a designer so you won’t get any (well many, hehe) arguments from me. I’m just telling you what MANY people think.

I work on the principle that I want to work with people who value good design and the mix I bring to it (marketing, editing, writing, consumer behaviour knowledge, etc.) If they don’t value that, they’re welcome to create items themselves, things that in many cases only a mother would love. Everyone has choices. :)
