Reality Checking Your Freelance Design Work

Reality Checking Your Freelance Design Work

The life of a freelance graphic/web designer can be incredibly rewarding. The independence of working for yourself is alluring, but working by yourself comes with more than a few drawbacks. With nobody to bounce ideas off of, or show your works in progress to, how do you ever really know if you’re on the right track?

In this episode, the gang talks about all the ways we can make sure our projects never lose sight of the original objectives and goals. We talk about ways to keep things on track, as well as how to get extra eyeballs on your work to make sure you’re actually connecting to the intended audience.

We also riff a bit about MasterCard’s new logo (ay-yay-yay…) and we tackle a new listener question about leaving the 9-5 world to strike out on your own — with a partner.

I believe with MasterCard they had to show the client the logo first to get their approval before proceeding with the rest of the branding. Please correct me if I am wrong.
