Two Years On…

design-work

It was two years ago today that I started plying my trade as a freelance graphic designer full time, having been made redundant twice in the space of 10 months. I recall on my first day, I had to borrow money to buy a cable from Tescos, so that I could link my Mac to my printer, so that I could set up at home and yes, it was a struggle to pay myself at the end of my first (and second) month of trading.

Now, with my destiny in my own hands I feel it’s going amazingly well. I’ve added many new clients, enhanced others and about to embark on some amazing new projects that I would never have thought possible.

I’m feeling good, enjoying my work, adding to my capabilities and achievements all the time and not even thinking of going back to the absolute nonsense of being employed.
