When I first started working as a freelance graphics designer 16 years ago, I had no idea what I was doing or what it would require to become one. All I had was a vague idea based on some of the creatives I followed and Dribbble the show and tell platform for designers.
I encountered many different kinds of clients from individuals to larger corporate businesses and local businesses that simply needed a quick touch up or a new logo designed.
Though there were many challenges along the way, those experiences helped to shape my career and personal life. Once i’d dusted myself off and looked at the positives I was able to gain a fresh perspective. This enabled me to take all the lessons I had learned and inject it into my life, business and creative projects. It wasn’t until a few months ago I began to ask myself the question.
I wonder if anyone else is struggling with working alone?
Or even feeling unsupported during the weekly climb of entrepreneurs, freelancers or simply having no idea where to start.
And thus a new idea was born!
