Email from Jeso regarding a design competition:

as a designer, how do you feel about these shitty contests?

Email from me in reply:

It’s a shitty excuse to get someone to do work for much less than they would pay for a real designer and a real design. Like everything else today, it infuriates me and makes me want to kill people/myself.

    This is the truth. I discovered this secret about orchestral auditions 15 years ago. Same story- they avoid paying anyone a real salary with benefits by not hiring anyone and instead “give” several different finalists “the opportunity” to come and play with the orchestra for a few weeks. Then not hire anyone andare peat the process a second year. That’s why I moved to New York and play dance classes.
