Business Tips for Designers
July 19th, 2013
Yesterday my final blog post for We Blog Design went live. It is the fifth in a five-part series, which covers business tips for designers. In crafting the posts, I sought the insights of three of my favorite designers, Jim Richards of Townscape, Dorie Pickle of Creative Pickle, and Judy Politi of Judith Politi Interior Design, incredible professionals in their own rights from various disciplines within the design field. I digested the life and business lessons they graciously shared… and added a few of my own to the mix.
In case you missed the tips, I’ve included them below (in no particular order).
- Business Tip #1: Remember It’s a Business
- Business Tip #2: Run the Business Well
- Business Tip #3: Build a Cash Reserve
- Business Tip #4: Budget for Work, Life, and Cash
- Business Tip #5: Stop Masochistic Volunteering
I owe a debt of gratitude to Katie Treggiden, designer extraordinaire and founder of We Blog Design for the invitation to contribute. I loved the experience of working with her incredible team, and I’m already looking forward to our next shared project.
