Great, Fast, and Cheap and/or Free


Remember the ‘ol Cheap-Fast-Good-You-Only-Get-Two paradigm?

Here’s a revised version (ht DRZ) for graphic designers, which could apply equally well to instructional designers, architectural designers, and many, many other services. 

Note the upgrade from “Good” to “Great,” because nowadays, just “Good” is not good enough… and also, this version extracts a fourth element — “Free” — as a  special case of “Cheap.”  Nicely done. Now if I only I knew who made this so that I could give them credit…
