A Graphic Design Student’s Guide to Freelance

Why wait until you graduate? Freelancing is a great way to jumpstart your career in graphic design. It lets you apply what you’ve been learning in school, close the gaps in your education with real-world experience, enhance your portfolio—and make a little money at the same time.

A Graphic Design Student’s Guide to Freelance: Practice Makes Perfectcovers everything you need to know to begin successfully freelancing as a designer, including how to set up your business, deal with legal and financial issues, find clients, and work with them effectively.

This full-color guide is divided into sections that correspond to your particular skill level as a student—beginner, intermediate, or advanced. These sections give you specific tasks and goals to help your freelance design work go smoothly as you progress from your very first professional job to gain experience with a range of projects and clients and prepare to move into a full-time graphic design career once you complete your studies. Complete with sample forms available online (invoices, a proof approval form, job jacket, and more) and 175 color images, including samples of paid work created by students, A GraphicDesign Student’s Guide to Freelance: Practice Makes Perfect will help you navigate the world of freelance design with confidence.

  • Write a business plan
  • Purchase key equipment
  • Set rates and draw up contracts
  • Find and manage clients
  • Create and show concepts
  • Market your company
  • Expand your business
