I agree with Katrina Ray of Maxx Design (DW 5 May), we should not participate in free pitching.
As a member of the Design Business Association, Aricot Vert Design Communications fully supports its code of conduct, which prevents members from participating in free pitching.
The reasons for this stance are many and blindingly obvious. So long as agencies continue to free pitch the credibility of our professional body is being eroded.
