I am talking of course about the "Field of Dreams” logo contest. Designers entered from around the world in good faith that a winner would be chosen.
Why wasn’t a winner chosen…?
A bunch of judges decided what the client had too chose from…how dare there dictate to the client, which designs, they could choose. I would be pissed off too if you told me, sorry we have deemed only the designs the ones you can chose from…
(Client) But we like one of the ones that is not one of YOUR Finalist.
(GoD) Sorry you cannot have that one!
(Client) But that one is perfect for our image!!!
(GoD) In our wisdom of many years of design have decided that we will choose it for you, because you do not know what you are doing…
(Client) You what? 4#@*
NOW ASK YOURSELF…How bad does that sound?
Design 21 (Judges) you need to check your egos at the door.
