Typical dirty, quick job.

Usually, I would have not started work on the job [ however quick and / or dirty ] unless I had an ongoing relationship with the client or had fixed the price/terms.

In this case, however, I have inherited clients and client-relationships and most of them are not used to paying at all for design jobs. Not even the cost of man-hours spent.

I would be doing myself a favor if instead of cribbing about the situation, I looked for the opportunities in these relationships and leveraged them to my company’s advantage. I wish the people who applied for jobs as graphic designers to work at nascent design studios realized, even slightly, how large their canvas is! This is not even the tip of the iceberg!
