What To Do With Your Rejected Designs ?
Let’s be clear about one thing before we look at your options:
Check your contract for the ownership and copyright rules before you do anything with your unused designs. Better yet, write your own contract and make sure the copyright rules are clearly stated and work in both of your favors.
The last thing you want is to repurpose a rejected design, only to hear from an angry client who believes they have the rights to everything you created during your time working together. Once that’s settled, you can pursue various options.
When that happens, what do you do with the unused designs? Unless the client wants to take ownership of them for a rainy day, do you just throw them away?
If you have something really well-designed or even the inklings of something that could be great, you have a number of things you can do with your work.
