    How many design pieces do you actually have? Do you have enough good stuff to put together a portfolio and what do you need a portfolio for? Is it for applying for jobs? For applying to a design course?...

    Nope, I'd never heard of the guy until now. Apparently, he's gone missing. I can't say that I'm all that impressed by most of his fonts, but there are a few interesting ones. Maybe I ought to download...

    Hi all,

    Just Introducing myself. I’m a designer from the UK who stumbled on your site, and found it hugely addictive.

    Welcome to the Forum MW.
    I saw in other posts that you used to work for design firms and have 8 years in the field.
    Going from working for someone to Freelance is a big step.
    Hope it goes well for you!

        Cheers PrintDriver, and alright uncle carbuncle.

        I work in London which fortunately makes it easier to get the freelance work, but I’m working on building a client base.
        It is a big step but one I am enjoying. Beats 18hr days, now I get to do 20hr days.

                      That's because you are the meaning of the word.

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world.
