The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
This poor guy learned the hard way that saving pennies by hiring the lowest priced designer could greatly increase bottom-line costs. Quality design requires adequate time and the right people to do it. Cut-rate design may still "work", but often the final cost of the project is many times greater than the small difference in fee between the best designer and the cheap guy.
