Why can I not use clip-art in my logo?

My client won't believe me when I tell him that I cannot use "Koerêl Drô" (CorelDraw) clip-art in his logo. Can someone help with facts/pointers/things to tell him that will sound reasonable (since he thinks I'm just being a "prima donna arty person" who is being "difficult")? 8 Dec 2006

What is it with some agencies that require people that are all rounders?

It is a bit like going to your general practitioner (Doc) to get a spine fusion done or your eyes fixed, that is what the specialists are there for. The design agency should work the same way, because when you employ general people you get general work but if you employ a specialist you get exceptional work. 29 Sep 2005

Industrial Design (3d drawing)

Is Durban Institute of Technology so bad that they can't even incorporate Industrial Design as a degree? If we want to study this we have to go to Wits or Cape Technicon which is unfair. 14 Feb 2005

The farce of creative pay

Nothing grates me more than that those responsible for the quality of creative work (writers and designers) are paid peanuts while others, like sales, feed off the quality that is provided. For some reason, someone decided that "creative talent" should not not be rewarded accordingly. It is a professional service, yet is not paid professional salaries. Where do the profits go? Not to creative - who actually "makes" the product. It's disgusting. 24 Jan 2005
