What is the difference between in house and agency?
great video, cool tips!
Great video, I'm in school for graphic design, and I'm excited!
Thanks so much for the great info! I've worked both in-house and remote, and looking to possibly go freelance in the next couple years once I pay off my student loans. I'd love to have more time to travel, and with a 9-5 job it can be rather complicated.
It is tough getting freelance clients, but they will also come out of no where. You are so right about word of mouth. Right now I am working for an old security guard that I would have casual small talk with at an old job! Setting up my files/working out contracts (or even having the client sign one) has been the thing I've been struggling with. My question is… What if the client won't sign the contract without explanation? They'll give a verbal (or email) agreement, but won't return the proposal contract.
this was actually SO interesting!
What about going for an agency job without a degree? Super motivated, more passionate then most about design & willing to go the distance. Any Ideas on how to communicate that to the potential agency? Besides creating your own portfolio & Showing past work with potential clients.
.Let me get this straight...Freelancing means you work for your own. .But in-house means I work for my own and for a company which send me that project. ..Right guys??
Love this video – I do see myself heading in the freelance direction sometime, so this was really helpful!
Don't forget there's also design studios! (more boutique a practice). There's always an interesting discussion I have with other designers around if you'd call it freelance or if you'd call them your own clients. If I go in and work with another company (agency, in-house, design studio) then I would call that freelance. But, if I work one on one with clients I would be more inclined to call them my own clients.
I think networking and extrovert/ relating to industry people is one of the most important aspects of succeeding as a freelancer! BUT I also believe people shouldn’t be discourage if they don’t feel like having to ability!
Great video! Very informative
@CharliMarieTV You are awesome !!!
Are you going to finish your series on designing a website?! I really liked how you were breaking it down into steps.
I have just started freelancing and so far I had a hard time getting client, I don't if that's because my proposals aren't that catching or because i lack experience and projects to actually show. Any help would be appreciated!
Great interview and advice. Freelance is definitely an end goal for me, but need to get some years of agency under my belt (as you suggested). Had a quick Q pls: As a freelance designer, do you do any of the coding? Or would the client then take your design to a freelance developer? Do you recommend devs to the client? Or work it into the proposal to get it coded/built? Freelance for an agency would be easier to understand as their in-house dev would then build it, I presume? Thanks
your hair got long again
i have been freelance for about 10 years, the problem is, i lost contact with my client quite often
Good morning thanks for the video
Thanks for having me on! One day I’ll be more comfortable in front of the camera. 🙂
Very informative. Thanks.
damn it, not first
