“Wow, your work is impressive, but I hope you can charge lower than the market rates…”


Does it make any sense???

That’s what some potential client said to me recently. So I laughed!

Please, to you guys who want to hire a good designer who has got an impressive portfolio but you have such mentality that you want something good, fast and you are not going to pay her well, go find some other so-called cheap ones because there are plenty of them out there. If you are one of those kind of cheapo clients then I am sorry to say that Liyin the Designer-in-Pajamas is NOT for you. Period.

Apologies if this message sounds offensive to some of you. Doesn’t sound even more offensive to say to a good designer, “Wow, your work is impressive, but I hope you can charge lower than the market rates…” ?? Is not that an insult?
