Pro Bono Work

An interesting [and clarifying] article about the facts and misconceptions surrounding pro bono work.  It’s easy to see how it can be misconstrued.

“Contrary to popular perception, pro bono doesn’t mean for free. Its literal Latin translation is “for good,” shorthand for pro bono publico, “for the good of the public.” (The accurate Latin phrase for “free” is gratis.)” ~ John Cary

Check out the “Five Myths About Pro Bono Design”

Linked in the article is an entertaining graphic about when it is ok to work for free [and when it’s not].  It’s called “Designers, Should You Work for Free?”

Here’s a small part of it [designed by Jessica Hische]
