Freelance Graphic Designer Manifesto

Thanks for a great class! I'm one of those people who saved up to quit my job and pursue my freelance career full time. I felt like if I'm going to do this, I need to put my full focus into it! So I made the sacrifices, saved up the money and took the plunge. Your class made me feel like I'm not alone on this path and I greatly appreciate that!

WHAT ARE YOU GOOD AT
Graphic Design, packaging, pop displays, branding, product photography, lifestyle photography, retouching and my side project that is so close to my heart – custom invitations for weddings, baby showers, etc!

HOW DO YOU WANT TO SPEND YOUR DAYS
HAPPY.. Being a creative is my passion and I want to spend my days doing work that makes me feel fulfilled. I don't mind working extra hours as long as I'm happy with what I'm doing and I can eventually make a living from it.

WHAT YOU WANT TO PRODUCE
Quality work that myself and the client can be proud of. I also want to turn my side project into a business, creating custom invitations for clients who don't want to choose their invitations from a template. I would also like to expand that into an online shop with printable decorations for parties.

HOW OTHERS WILL BENEFIT FROM WORKING WITH YOU
My work ethic makes others want to work with me. I am patient, kind and I've been told that my passion for what I do shows in my work and in conversations. Others will benefit by feeling at ease about working with me and will feel like their project is in good hands.

HOW YOU'LL MAKE THEM KNOW ABOUT YOUR SERVICES
Through my portfolio website, melidesigns.com, behance profile and instagram account, all of which I will be continuing to update with more about me and my work. I also have a network of people who I've previously worked with that refer me to others. All of my invitation clients have come to me by referral only, so I am excited to see the potential growth when I start promoting my invitation business!

This is a great exercise... These thoughts usually just whirl around in my head all day, so it's nice to be able to organize them all and see a more clear picture of who I am and what I want to do with my career :)
