David Airey’s is a designer who has very useful information on his blog. His latest post discusses 15 pieces of advice for designers who want or are in the self-employment biz. I personally like the fourth rule and even though I’ve been designing for a couple years, pricing still seems to be tricky at times. Here are couple of his advice.
1. Look at the big picture
2. Tell your friends and family about your self-employment
3. You will lose potential clients because your pricing is too high
4. Don’t stress about pricing
I’d like to thank Iquan for featuring me on the art & design blog “Mix206.com“. I’m featured as a “Certified Artoholik” and his paragraph is short, but sweet. I’m assuming he wanted my work to speak for itself. Make sure you check out Mix206.com it’s a cool blog that features “package of the day”. Iquan is head of the blog and runs his own design agency “Artoholiks”, so it’s a cool feeling to be recognized by another designer.

IF you’re looking to publish your own book, ebook, calendar, etc. and you want to take the DIY approach, then lulu.com is for you. I remember I had a design friend of mine who was creating a calendar and I could not point him in a direction when asked where to print at. I feel this could be better than hiring the local printer. Who knows what you want to do and this can help pitch your book to retailers.
