Let’s say that “universal price” for a loaf of bread is $10 (I need wiggle room). There are some people who make specialist bread (with cheese) and sell it for $15. These a good prices based on the cost of flour, eggs, bread makers, bread sellers, and of course bread buyers. The economy is stable.
A new baker comes to town and rather than taking a new trade he wants to step into the bread game here. He launches his business with the usual $10 loaf but also shows a new loaf with seeds on top. That is $11. People get excited for seeds. He becomes “the seed guy” and overall while other bakers lose a bit of business they all do ok as $10 bread is still stable and $15 cheese bread unaffected. There is now $11 seed bread. The world got bigger.
Along comes a fellow called Freddie. He wants to make bread. He knows he isn’t very good at it and doesn’t know how to slice cheese or how to sprinkle seeds. He wants to take the world by storm. So he says, I’ll out clever 'em all. He decides to sell bread for $1.
Despite the fact, his bread tastes like used shoes, the market goes into freefall as his price discrepancy is too hard to make sense of so people assume $10 bread was a rip-off all along. Helped in great part as Freddie’s whole marketing campaign is based around how everyone is a rip-off (remember his bread tastes terrible).
It makes no sense for Freddie to sell bread at $1 when the universal price is $10. Even if Freddie is a bit unsure of himself and wants to trade on price alone $9 might make sense. $1 makes no sense at all. (a new type of bread would be better for everyone, esp Freddie)
Someone saying oh but my dollar in my country is worth different so I should work at less is insane. Bonkers. Bebebbeeelly dribbly insane. When they could work at the universal rate and make sure they offer a comparable loaf of bread.
How great would that be if you lived in Outerdollarayearland to be able to sell your bread on a level playing field for $10!!! So why do people not do exactly that instead of putting a spanner in the works?
A sane customer doesn’t care where you live, what color you are, where you put it in whom last night, after kneeling to what God. All they care is that they get a nice loaf of bread with or without cheese or seeds or whatever variation you came up with.
@marinapomorac I made that logo and it worked for that lady. I never say it is great work but it serves its purpose for her. This is why I put it in the semi-pro slot as it “does, the job” and tells the story that business wanted to tell. I never suggest it were as perfect as if it were done by a $50,000 branding professional. The difference between mine and that abomination tho should be apparent to anyone - esp the person who made it with claims they make Pro logos. the Bayer logo I chose because many would think it more boring than bad droppings. But it’s Proness cannot be questioned.
