Are Designers Stingy?

    I think designers are "stingy" because we are poor, or we don't have a solid feeling of always having a solid income. It makes it hard to justify purchases, even though in reality an $8 is a couple of coffees.

    I think providing real, tangible (or time-saving) value is the way to squeeze money out of designers.

      Don't forget that designers can be in-house with stable income...

        if they're in-house, they could probably just buy with a budget. When I had a full-time design job, I'd just use Sketch and everything else through work. For sure, that's where the "real" money is—enterprise

        I've only had to buy Sketch for myself now that I'm off freelancing and doing my own thing.
