We as designers say that a lot, but do you actually do it?
A designer told me "i don't know why i paid a designer for his font when i could have gotten it for free".
If you don't walk the walk, who will pay you? Any kind of design can be seen as something you can get for free, but how does the cheap action of not paying a designer talk about you? Heck, a designer disregarding the act of charging for design means he probably sees himself as useless. Iam very afraid of the work that can come out of people who consider themselves useless.
