I made a draft design with F and then she pressured me to put it into production ASAP.

However, once it was online, she took feedback from others and wanted changes.

What's more, P didn't respond to the initial request for feedback. Only once it was online did he ask for a change.

The main thing I regret was not clarifying my contribution philosophy for this pro-bono project:

Perhaps part of the problem was also that the image draft I sent wasn't interactive and easily shareable the same way the website had been. This suggests looking for more interactive ways to get early feedback.
