My life as a freelance designer

Crowdsourced design contests: friend or foe? One designer argues the case.

In the course of my five years as a freelance graphic designer, I’ve heard countless designers weigh in on the value of crowdsourced design contests. They’re almost always frustrated naysayers or fervent fans. But the way I see it, the merit of graphic design contests isn’t a black and white issue. I realise they’re not for everyone, but I know they’re essential to legions of designers like me.
