We’re back to eating up every last bit of words with this whole ongoing spec thing. This writer has seen enough to understand that he was wrong in the spec department. He was thinking more along the lines of creating to help your portfolio, and maybe in the film industry that’s different, this spec stuff, or maybe it’s because he’s lonely and sad and this was the pitiful cry for help he’s been hoping you’ll hear. Whimper. Whatever the case, all thoughts of spec are banished after you see No-Spec, a new site we found via Designers Who Blog the last time we were rethinking all of this. Here’s what No-Spec is about (if their name isn’t giving you any ideas):

The mission of this blog is to educate both clients and Visual Communication designers (also known as ‘graphic’ designers) and about the nature of speculative, or “spec” work. It also serves as a vehicle to unite designers who support the notion that spec work devalues the potential of design and ultimately does a disservice to the client.
