Official instructional classes are over, meaning that from today on, Intelligent Designs is now in the business of freelance graphic design and visual communications! It's exciting, and a little nerve wracking, to know that this is it. This is the business. This is what it comes down to. Insert inspiration motivational phrase here.
I've already got some light work lined up, namely from some fellows I'm taking the classes with, but a start is a start and they are just as much important potential clients as anyone else. In fact I'm a little excited to get things going for them, simply because this IS what I want to do. I'll double check with them to make sure I can actually mention them specifically here, so let's hope a little cross-promotion goes our way, yes?
Aside from official work, I also have two wee side projects on the go, which actually just reminded me I have to bolt to the dollar store in a little bit :) Both projects are for a wedding / bridal shower, and the client in both cases is my sister. As a personal aside, I never turn down family help, unless I absolutely have to. I'm quite excited for these projects, one being another pop-op card, the other some amazingly creative ideas from my sister to facilitate the shower. I will definitely post some progress pictures here, or maybe do what I did in the beginning and post a full post when it's over.
NEW FEATURE! I should finally start posting some fun incentives for people to read, apparently my sining and exciting words may not be enough. So I bring you an interesting video concerning the design industry and being paid.
Thanks for reading!
