Why we don’t do Pilot Projects or so called Free Mockup Designs? & Why Pilot Projects & Free Mockup design doesn’t work?

Few collection of thoughts from my experience of design freelancing & pursuing design processes & doing design oriented business for living for last more than 4 years.

When somebody asks for Mockup before starting any paid & finalised project,

Following situations can be seen & felt by designer

  • Client is unsure about prospect of project
  • Client has unpractical approach towards project
  • Client lack proper investment & money
  • Client is hesitant about future of project
  • It’s just real waste of time if you are not going to paid for it
  • There is confusion in conversation of respective parties client & designer
  • Time is blocked by unpaid Mockup design process
  • Designer can’t take more interesting & paid work because he is occupied by just making Mockups
  • Mockup has no value for showcasing in real world because people want what is more sellable content & design & finished product

Now you can understand why we don’t do Mockups for any clients or any prospective client.
