littlemisspetite : As long as you haven’t made them do actual work for you or commited to specific dates /exchange money then I probably would just stop contacting them and leave it at that.
But as an artist myself… it is nice to know when someone decides to go a different direction so you don’t put any more energy or thoughts towards their project that you won’t get anyways. (That being said, no one ever has lol and I don’t put much energy in now until they give me a deposit).
If you really feel the need then a nicely written email should suffice. They shouldn’t take it personally (unless you made them make you a bunch of mock ups) “Thank you for your time and answering my questions. I have decided to go a different route but I would happily recommend you to friends and family”. Something along those lines. You really don’t owe them an explanation and you shouldn’t feel bad.
You were talking to them in the first place to decide who would be best for your day. I figure its like a job interview. You were interviewing them for your florist. I have never gotten a callback from a company when they decide to go with a different candidate.
