David, I predict that your article at Successful Blog will become a classic for sure. I attempted to feature it on DWB this morning but became swamped with a glitch. So, tomorrow it'll have to be!

Liz, it was a pleasure writing. Brett, you've got it. The majority don't realise the education and experience that designers have. It's always a nice feeling when you pick up a client who appreciates the value of good design.

1. Cost of education. Whether you are self-taught or spent money learning it at a school you still have to invest time and money to accomplish the design skills that you have. 2. Cost of software and computer. It's not cheap. About every 2 years or so a new updated graphic design suite will be released and in order to stay up to date with other design tatics you really have to debate to upgrade or not. Also it could possibly require to upgrade or build new computers. 3. New things require more time to learn. It's ever changing. Time is money. So when people get confused on why it cost so much even though it could possibly not take a whole lot of time its most likely they don't understand the investment that really goes in. Don't worry, there are plenty of people out there that know the investment involved. Those are the people you spend your money and marketing efforts to help meet their needs.

David, Your article at Successful-Blog shows the value of hiring a trained and talented graphic designer. That guy who picked up his camera phone is just that -- some guy with a camera phone -- no more, no less. It will show in the way his picture is composed, in the way his visual presentation isn't quite so satisfying. Thank you for explaining all of the roles you and other graphic designers fulfill for us. Please keep making our world better. Liz
