The best bits about being a freelance graphic designer, so far!

I have been at this now for just under 4 months so I thought I’d share with you some of the benefits I’m finding about working for myself, and not having to drag myself into an office everyday!

 

NO COMMUTING…

Those two hours a day saved by not sitting in my car, cursing at traffic have definitely saved a lot of stress! It gives me lots more time each day… so there’s a lot more baking and cooking happening in my house! I know in winter I’m going to be very grateful for not standing outside shivering while de-icing the car at 7am!

I GET TO CHOOSE THE MUSIC…

No more office debates about conflicting music tastes or which radio station to choose… I’m in charge!

 

NO MORE MORNING PANICS ABOUT WHAT TO WEAR…

I promise I’ve not turned into a slob that wears pajamas all day… but not having to run around the house everyday deciding what to wear and trying to find where my shoes have disappeared to, is certainly a plus point!

 

I GET TO WORK ON JOBS THAT I LOVE…

On a more serious note, my favourite thing about working for myself is that I get to work on jobs that I enjoy, all the time! This is something I am very grateful for, I work with some lovely clients and I’m meeting lots of new ones.

Working at an agency meant that if a client didn’t have a big enough budget we wouldn’t be able to do the work, which meant I worked for lots of corporate clients that just needed everything as quickly as possible without any passion or enthusiasm for what they were doing.

One of the parts of being a graphic designer that I love the most is working with start up/small businesses as it means I get to fully understand a business and see it grow and develop with the people that really care about it. I have the pleasure of seeing my clients get excited when I create something they love and then see this turn into a new brand or business, and it couldn’t be more rewarding!

I have been busy meeting new clients and working on new projects and I have loved every second of it so far. Here is a snapshot of a few of the projects I’ve been working on over the last couple of months…

    Even though most freelancer writers tend to do all jobs that come their way when they start out, with time you can pretty much pick and choose between the kind of writing jobs you want and the topic which you’d like to write about.
