Creativebits on NO!SPEC

creativebits: This concerns you guys so check it out!

The mission of NO!SPEC is to educate both clients and Visual Communication designers (also known as ‘graphic’ designers) about the nature of speculative, or “spec” work. It also serves as a vehicle to unite designers who support the notion that spec work devalues the potential of design and ultimately does a disservice to the client. We encourage those who are like-minded to support this effort by placing a “NO!SPEC” logo on your site, distributing the “NO!SPEC” poster created by top Illustrator Von Glitschka from Glitschka Studios, as well as contributing your thoughts, comments, articles and insights. The only requirement for participation is putting the appropriate value on your profession.
