Pentagram clarifies stance on unpaid creative pitches

Further to your news article, C Eye focuses on branding of Warwick Conferences (DW 16 August), I would like to point out that Pentagram did not participate in the unpaid creative pitch for Warwick Conference’s branding project.

We declined immediately on receipt of a Request for Proposal that required speculative creative work, and continue to decline such requests.
