    Ok, a little back story...

    I went on a job interview recently for a local Alphagraphics. They were needing a lead designer, as their current designer is not good at all. According to the manager I interviewed with, she shows up sporadically at best, does sub standard work when she does any at all, and is rude to customers and co-workers. Well, he proceded to show me a logo that she did that she charged the customer $1000 for. Allegedly, this logo took 8 hours to do and she was supposedly REALLY proud of it. Well, I guess the customer took the proof sheet, and were never heard from again.

    Fast Forward a week or so...

    I'm working at a small-time screenprinting/embroidery shop. I'm going through some old files and run across a file for this company. Curious, I open it up, AND IT'S THE SAME LOGO!!!! The one the customer "didn't like". My boss said that they came in with this on a piece of paper and asked them to reproduce it for them, since they had "lost" the original file.

    I thought this was hilarious as hell. I'm debating telling the Alphagraphics manager about this, even tho he didn't hire me. What do y'all think i should do?

    oh yeah if you wanna see this masterpiece, here's a link
    the logo is the upper half of the ad, above the list.

              I would, but I don't know it that's the professional thing to do. Designers have to look out for designers. Like that whole logoworks thing.

                    If I was the client I wouldn't pay 1k for that horrible thing, but then I wouldn't then take it to someone else to get it recreated.

                      Offer to redesign it into something that doesn't make people want to vomit.

                      Fee? $500.

                          Some people are idiots... they like that kinda stuff, But obviously they didn't think it was worth 1k either since they stole it.

                            That's correct. They spent days working on that lolli pop knowing that each day the price for this sucker is climbing and then got out in a panic.

                                It's not an issue of inexperience in web design work. My guess is that you put the site together without putting much thought into its purpose. As Calebninja notes, 'It seems to be a mix of a personal...

                                You strike me as the type of guy who is well-accustomed to software and systems. The average user like the guys in our front office, can break things unintentionally by just looking at them. Either system...
