Subject Re: [VOTE] Flex logo contest page publish [Last Detail - thoughts]
Date Sun, 08 Jan 2012 16:31:30 GMT
As a professional designer I am ethically opposed to sites like this for
the purpose of crowd sourcing graphic design. If you go this direction you
will find that designers like me will not participate for this very reason.
And these are the people you need involved. If you go down this road you
will tarnish Apache Flex among the design community. I can't state this
strongly enough. In this community we have ample supply of excellent
graphic design expertise who are stoked to contribute.
