I enjoyed the article about the charity work because it relates to the project we are currently working on. I think it's interesting that since there isn't as much money used on the project that the designer can be as creative as he/she wants. When reading the article it made me wonder if designers would prefer the allowance to be creative or would rather have a higher commission on a project with less creative freedom. I found the part of the article that talked about the VSO very interesting in the fact that the "real professionals" were out doing something useful for the causes they believed in. I hope that once I get settled with a decent amount of money to live on that I too can do charity work and help raise awareness for causes I believe in.
