Went to school for Graphic Design, starting getting enough clients that I began learning more on my own. Started my own freelance business and then switched my major to marketing. Had an internship recently at an advertising firm where I was able to do design work for clients like Wahl, Yamaha Outboards, and the Wisconsin Lottery.
Currently pursuing more freelance design avenues as well as having my hands in a vast amount of work for bands and boardsport companies.
I do not do any design work without first signing a contract. I typically take 1/2 of the total payment for a design upfront. We can work out anything from deliverables to fee structure to the project time table. If any more work is needed during the design process to which we have not yet agreed upon then a new contract will be created for the additional work.
Been busting my balls lately so hopefully I'll have more to post up in the near future!
