1. The prospective client has to value design
2. the person doing the design has to be capable of producing something of value to THAT prospective client.

One thing that is certain is that a prospective client or customer is not going to pay two different designers for the same project at the same time. If you sell a design it isolates you as the main person or entity that the client is dealing with on the project.
Another is that you presumably have a good deal of interaction and should gain the prospects confidence by the time the design is complete - then the build is yours to keep or lose.

If design is not of high value for whatever reason and you have no other way to fill your schedule, it is not a sin to do a low value design as an investment in marketing. Thai is only if you value the time and effort less than the opportunity that it can yield.
