Debbie: There were two different matters on the ballot. The first asked if the member supported the strategic framework as it's been articulated, the second was the choice between "status quo" and "transformative". Those numbers are the results of the two different ballot questions.

I really appreciate the swift, thoughtful, and professional response by AIGA on this matter. While Gap's motives and strategy were foggy at best, I think it became a great opportunity to explain to a broader market the value of engaging directly with a professional designer rather than "crowdsourcing" speculative design work. Thank you again for your efforts.

Ric, Thanks to you and the whole team involved for a well-reasoned, thoughtfully-written response to the evolving issue of spec work. I particularly appreciate the understanding that this is not a black-and-white matter, but instead one that designers must tackle individually, with knowledge of the pros and cons of both "sides". I applaud your work. Drew Davies Owner, Oxide Design Co. Design Director, AIGA | Design for Democracy
