A certain buyer asked for a premium quality design from a friend who is a logo designer.
He worked his best and showed him some samples that was impressive enough. The logo was sent as a sample to the buyer for review, if the had liked it, he promised to order the gig.
Instead, the buyer used the logo sample and put it on buyer request to trace out the sample as a basic $5 gig.
This was a very unethical situation.
My friend invested time and effort and wasn’t even appreciated. I really don’t know how to handle unethical buyers, any suggestions?
