As creative people (and even as technical people) we are often asked (sometime cajoled) to work for free. Yes, I know, how tactless! How audacious!

Every time I hear it I can’t help but recall Harlan Ellison’s infamous rant (funny and true and definitely NSFW) from his documentary Dreams with Sharp Teeth.

Now, I’ve been known to do work pro bona (for a charity or a good cause) so sometimes the answer is yes. But if you have ever struggled with this question then struggle no more! Thanks to fellow creative and graphic designer Jessica Hische (love her curves… I’m talking typography here), you can now find the right answer from this handy-dandy¬†Should I Work for Free? flowchart.

Thanks Jess, nice CSS work BTW.
