Business

To love Graphic Design and to have a job you enjoy doing is one side, but to make a living out of it and handle clients and projects is another side to it. Business is important and not everyone who is good with design thinking has necessarily a good handle on dealing with numbers and therefore money. If we work with a client and provide them with a service, we work for them and mostly there is an arranged price for it. But who doesn’t know the situation that they change their mind, don’t want to pay anymore the agreed price or at all, delays… The business side can turn into a nightmare. I think it is important to get a feel for different kind of people and what you can expect of them or not and then to follow up precautions. But always have something in writting – I learned that the hard way.
