Proofing errors are the bane of all graphic designers. Anyone who has been in this business long enough knows that clients will almost always try to blame you when they find errors on their project.
One problem when people present their designs is they usually explain how they designed it when what they should do is explain why they designed it.
Growing your design business takes a lot of hard work. Especially when first starting out. Word of mouth referrals are and always will be the most effective way of achieving this growth
Every time a client discusses a new design project with you, it opens a window of opportunity for upselling other services and products you can offer them.
Your team should be made up of people with skills to complement the services you offer. People with skills you either don’t have yourself, skills you are not that good at, or skills you simply don’t want to do.
Self-employment isn’t for everyone. It takes a certain type of individual to have the drive and discipline to make it work. If you think running your own graphic design business is something you want to do I highly encourage you to start setting the pieces in place today and get working towards the day you make the leap from employee to entrepreneur.
