This review is from: Work for Money, Design for Love: Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions About Starting and Running a Successful Design Business (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
This book was recommended to me by another freelance graphic designer. I've been in business for myself for 11 years now and have had struggles, challenges and ups and downs. I've also had lots of success with virtually no one to celebrate with because not many people understand how hard it is to run a design business successfully. This book is a companion to all designers out there trying to make a living from being creative. I love my business and I love designing, but trying to actually make a living from doing that is harder than you might first think. Airey writes about how to guard against some of the pitfalls, how to avoid not getting paid, how to keep sane, stay creative and the practical side of running a design business. I highly recommend this book for all designers running their own business and for those who are thinking about doing that or who are just starting out. It is also a very nicely designed of course and it's easy to dip in and out whenever you need a boost or need some inspiration to keep on going. I take it with me to my kids swim lessons for a quick pick-me-up and I've also recommended it to other designers I know. Thank you so much for this book!
