Can a probono client still my headlines? What about ideas? We are pitching work and we have amazing stuff put together. I’ve pitched before but i have never cared enough to ask myself this question until now. ‘Cuz this pitch deck is looking sick and i just had a little daydream of a client saying “no” and then looking at my headline on tv and screaming “mother fu—“ then end card.

If they would say no, then it wouldn’t be on tv. If it’s on tv, then you would say, yay, and it’s yours to claim

Lol whoops. Steal* Like, imagine they say the concept proposed it too much for them. And thank us for the work. Then tell us they will get back to us, but they never do. It’s another dead pitch. But five months later, they use some variant of your concept with their own spin. With a headline of yours.

This happens. You put it in your book, or don’t. I decided not to, since the full campaign didn’t end up with enough depth to justify it

I suppose it’d depend on the agreement they signed and whether they own the rights to any pitched work. Similar thing happened to me at a smaller agency. Created a rebrand and campaign for a local restaurant. Owner said “Nice! However looking at the costs I don’t think I can afford to bring this idea to life.” They then had their significant other who was a “Designer” knock off our work. Owner of my agency let it slide because the client was a referral from a good friend and they didn’t want to burn any bridges. 🤷‍♂️
