Today, September 4th, is three29′s birthday! I’ve been in business for one who year and learned a hell of a lot in this first year…
I have not studied graphic design or business when I was in college as I started using Photoshop when I was in my 2nd year of college. I studied film studies, product design (wood work) and psychology – but I do have a independent study ‘Graphic design and working with clients’ which I received an A in. And no, I’m not a Uni person. So it’s all very new to me and a learn as I go along. I’ve learned how to deal with clients, filling out my first self assessment, money management, time management, new programs and so on.
In this first year of business I have done a lot of interesting projects which have pushed me further, and it’s the projects that have you biting your nails at the start which usually come out best. I’ve also met a lot of awesome people, whether they’re clients or designers/illustrators. There’s a few things I need to start doing differently though. Like allowing more time for personal projects, so I can try out new things and learn. As many clients don’t really like something knew appearing on there project. Also… a bit more time off to avoid burn out!
All in all it’s been a great year. I’m so glad I didn’t go to uni and chose to try something completely new out. I hope it continues to go as well Would like to say a big thank you to everyone I have worked with and everyone whose ever given me feedback so I can improve! You are appreciated.
