Money Advice for Freelance Designers

Money Advice for Freelance Designers



So it's time for the final lecture I'll be giving to the illustration students of UCLan, well this side of 2015 at least, and tomorrow it's all about money.

Just like last weeks talk (which went really well), it's not just my advice and experiences that I'll be talking through. I have to give a huge thank you to my colleagues and all the readers of Designer News who helped by filling of my short survey.

I've curated all the survey results in to short bullets of advice. Below I have picked out some really nice advice and quotes that people have left behind...

Cost & Time Estimates

Junior Designer Salleries

Invoicing and Saving

Building Relationships

I hope everyone who witnessed the presentation found it useful, sorry if again it was lacking killer visuals this week.

Presented at

University of Central Lancashire
